Section 508 Compliant This book examines the architecture of Akrotiri, dealing not only with the building technology, but also with issues of typology, form, and function. It provides an overall picture of the architecture of Akrotiri, including an outline of its town plan, a description of the individual houses, and a discussion of its relationship with Crete and its neighbours in the Eastern Mediterranean. The book is based on the author's personal observations and experience obtained over a fifteen year period (1977-1992) of work at the site of the Akrotiri excavation. This book is confined to the last phase of habitation and the uniquely preserved houses that are seen today.

Abstract : An olive branch is traditionally a symbol of peace, but not necessarily in the context of chronological problems in the Eastern Mediterranean region and the Near East during the second millennium BC. Cherubini et al. (above) strongly attack the radiocarbon dating by Friedrich et al. (2006) of an ancient olive branch, buried by volcanic tephra during the Minoan Santorini eruption. The criticism stems from their investigation of growth rings in modern olive trees on Santorini. The authors attempt with additional arguments, beyond their botanical investigation, to defend the traditional low chronology of the Santorini eruption of around 1500 BC. However, they ignore other crucial publications with radiocarbon dates concerning the Santorini eruption. In this response, we evaluate and negate their main arguments, and present our own conclusions.

This tribute to Professor Sara Immerwahr comprises a short biography, her full bibliography, and twenty articles written by fellow scholars celebrating her contributions to the field of Bronze Age painting and art history, as well as her encouragement and generous support of her students and colleagues over many years. Thirteen Bronze Age scholars present papers that address aspects of social, political, religious, and ritual significance in wall paintings, matters of chronology, regional trade and interaction, and Cretan architecture. Seven scholars of the Archaic, Classical and Roman periods explore issues in sculpture, architecture, pottery, and dedications.
