Beyond the Palace: Mycenaean East Lokris

Front Cover
Archaeopress, 2008 - History - 188 pages
This study provides an overview of the available evidence for the Mycenaean period in East Lokris, dealing with the sites, finds and environmental evidence. The second, analytical section looks at the influence of the landscape and location of the area on the North Euboean Gulf in determining settlement patterns, and on the economic history of the area. It concludes that although located at the periphery of the Mycenaean world, the area was fully integrated within Mycenaean culture, and that its coastal location, in fact enabled it to survive the collapse of the palace culture into the early Iron Age.
