Becoming Mycenaean?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

At the 6th meeting of the Mycenaean Seminar Dr Michael Boyd (Senior Research Associate; McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research) will present the topic “Becoming Mycenaean? Developments in Mycenaean burial practices and their role in wider social change.”

The paper will consider the changes in burial practices through the Mycenaean period in five areas: funerary architecture, association and collective burial, secondary treatments, the funerary landscape, and the use of material culture.
