Until his premature death in 1984 at the age of 45, Mark Cameron made a unique contribution to the study of Minoan wall painting; his published articles continue to inspire a new generation of Aegean wall painting and have expanded our perception of the Aegean and its relations with the neighboring cultures during the second millennium BC. This volume, dedicated to the memory of Mark Cameron, now brings together leading scholars in a presentation of some of the latest ideas in the field of Aegean painting. Contributors include: M. Bietak, A. Chapin, S. Hood, S. Immerwahr, R. Jones, N. Marinatos, L. Morgan, M. Shaw, C. Palyvou, E. Photos-Jones, I. Tzachili and P. Warren.
