Malcom H. Wiener
Institute for Aegean Prehistory

Beyond the 'Versailles Effect'. Minoan Crete, Mycenaean Greece, the cyclades and the Eastern Aegean at the beginning of the Late Bronze Age
In a recent article in Krinoi kai Limenes, the speaker argued that Crete in LM IA was a unified state governed from Knossos, whose reach extended beyond the island. The Minoan Seminar talk will address the nature of the Minoan impact at the beginning of the Late Bronze Age on Mycenaean Greece in various areas including language, and the very different nature or natures of the Minoan impact on the Cyclades, Dodecanese and the Anatolian coast, with particular emphasis on the Minoan search for metal sources.
