External Relations of Early Iron Age Crete

External Relations of Early Iron Age Crete

by AIA Staff, Donald W. Jones




Based on a catalogue of 'foreign' artefacts found at 33 sites in Crete and Cretan artefacts found beyond the island, Jones presents a detailed examination of the extent of foreign influence in Iron Age Crete and the role of commercial trade in the distribution of artefacts. Sections also examine the archaeological evidence for shipping, including the location of harbours, the extent of piracy, the social significance of gift exchange and the meaning of the artefacts themselves. (Artefacts are not illustrated.)
