The making of a p(a)lace. Constructing society on the Kephala Hill at Knossos

Friday, November 25, 2016

The next Minoan Seminar will be given by Peter Tomkins (Senior Fellow, Wiener Laboratory, American School of Classical Studies) who will address the subject “Making p(a)laces, stabilizing the social. Understanding the emergence of the Minoan palaces during the Cretan Early Bronze Age”. The lecture will focus on initial construction and early development of the court-complex on the Kephala Hill at Knossos in EM II, how this complex might have functioned and what it might tell us about social structure and political organisation at the very beginnings of urbanism at Knossos. 

The Minoan Seminar is hosted by the Archaeological Society at Athens and is organized by Efi Sapouna-Sakellaraki, Lefteris Platon and Yiannis Papadatos, with Colin Macdonald as Secretary.
