Following Oliver Dickinson’s successful The Aegean Bronze Age, this textbook is a synthesis of the period between the collapse of the Bronze Age civilization in the thirteenth and twelfth centuries BC, and the rise of the Greek civilization in the eighth century BC. With chapter bibliographies, distribution maps and illustrations, Dickinson’s detailed examination of material and archaeological evidence argues that many characteristics of Ancient Greece developed in the Dark Ages. He also includes up-to-date coverage of the 'Homeric question'. This highly informative text focuses on: the reasons for the Bronze Age collapse which brought about the Dark Ages the processes that enabled Greece to emerge from the Dark Ages the degree of continuity from the Dark Ages to later times. Dickinson has provided an invaluable survey of this period that will not only be useful to specialists and undergraduates in the field, but that will also prove highly popular with the interested general reader.

Warfare in Bronze Age Society takes a fresh look at warfare and its role in reshaping Bronze Age society. The Bronze Age represents the global emergence of a militarized society with a martial culture, materialized in a package of new efficient weapons that remained in use for millennia to come. Warfare became institutionalized and professionalized during the Bronze Age, and a new class of warriors made their appearance. Evidence for this development is reflected in the ostentatious display of weapons in burials and hoards, and in iconography, from rock art to palace frescoes. These new manifestations of martial culture constructed the warrior as a 'Hero' and warfare as 'Heroic'. The case studies, written by an international team of scholars, discuss these and other new aspects of Bronze Age warfare. Moreover, the essays show that warriors also facilitated mobility and innovation as new weapons would have quickly spread from the Mediterranean to northern Europe.

Diese Publikation verfolgt einen mehrfachen Zweck: Zum einen soll ein grundlegender, chronologisch aufbauender Überblick über die Geschichte des Altertums vermittelt werden, der sich in seiner zeitlichen und räumlichen Ausdehnung nicht allein auf die klassische Antike, d.h. auf die griechischrömische Welt beschränkt, sondern auch deren Vorläuferkulturen im Vorderen Orient und Alten Ägypten berücksichtigt. Zum anderen soll dieser chronologische Überblick durch wesentliche, diachron und überregional zu behandelnde Aspekte ergänzt werden. Das Schema des Buches sieht eine Gliederung in zwei größere Abschnitte vor: Abschnitt I behandelt in zehn Kapiteln "Epochen und Räume" der Alten Geschichte, die eine sinnvolle Einheit bilden und deshalb keinesfalls voneinander losgelöst betrachtet werden können; Abschnitt II stellt in fünf Kapiteln ausgewählte "Aspekte" vor, die in ihrer thematischen Ausrichtung auf spezifische Grundlagen, Fragestellungen und Teilbereiche historischer Forschung Bezug nehmen. Die als programmatisch zu verstehende Einleitung unternimmt den Versuch einer Synthese und soll den LeserInnen als Leitfaden für die nachfolgenden Kapitel dienen.

Black Ships And Sea Raiders

The end of the Bronze Age in the Eastern Mediterranean was a time of social, political, and economic upheaval – conditions reflected, in many ways, in the world of Homer’s Odyssey. Jeffrey P. Emanuel examines the Odyssey’s Second Cretan Lie (xiv 191 – 359) in the context of this watershed transition, with particular emphasis on raiding, warfare, maritime technology and tactics, and the evidence for the so-called ‘Sea Peoples’ who have been connected to the events of this period. He focuses in particular on the hero’s description of his frequent raiding activities and on his subsequent sojourn in the land of the pharaohs, and connections between Odysseus’ false narrative and the historical experiences of one particular Sea Peoples group: the ‘Sherden of the Sea.’

Karl-Wilhelm Welwei lässt auf Basis neuester archäologischer Funde die gesamte Geschichte des antiken Griechenlands Revue passieren - von den Anfängen bis zum Ende der Unabhängigkeit der Stadtstaaten durch Alexander den Großen. Er zeigt, wie sich in der Kleinräumigkeit der Lebenswelt nach dem Zusammenbruch der mykenischen Paläste Identitäten ausbildeten. Erstmals stehen nicht nur die außenpolitischen Krisen wie die Perserkriege und der Konflikt zwischen Athen und Sparta im Zentrum der Betrachtung, auch die Randgebiete der griechischen Kultur werden berücksichtigt. Neben der Ereignisgeschichte und den wirtschaftlichsozialen Strukturen erörtert der Autor wichtige Aspekte der hellenischen Kultur (v.a. das politische Denken). Seit langem die erste umfassende Darstellung einer faszinierenden weltgeschichtlichen Epoche - ein Standardwerk für alle, die sich das gewandelte Bild des antiken Griechentums erschließen wollen.

The Vienna workshops on LH III C Chronology and Synchronisms serve the purpose of developing a generally applicable chronological framework of the LH III C period and contributing to a better understanding of the history of this important phase of the early history of Greece. The third workshop was dedicated to the last phases of the Mycenaean civilisation and the transition to the Protogeometric period. Apart from the presentation of mostly unpublished materials from old and new excavations, the proceedings of this workshop contains contributions to many subjects concerning the transition from the Late Bronze to the Early Iron Ages. Several speakers pointed out that the end of the Mycenaean civilisation and the transition to the Early Iron Age expressed itself by different cultural phenomena in the various regions of Greece. One of the main topics was the much-debated question of whether or not there existed a so-called Submycenaean period, and if so, how it should be defined. Moreover, a new proposal for the absolute chronology of the end of the Late Bronze Age is suggested, which will certainly raise a lively discussion.
