The first comprehensive contextual introduction to the visual arts and architecture of Crete, Greece, and the Aegean islands during the Bronze Age (c.3000-1000 BCE). This book introduces the reader to the historical and social contexts within which the arts - pottery, gold, silver, and ivory objects, gravestone reliefs, frescoes, and architecture - of the Aegean area developed. It examines the functions they served, and the ways in which they can be read as
evidence for the interactions of many different peoples and societies in the eastern Mediterranean.
