In this seminar, we will explore problems in the archaeology of prehistoric (Minoan) Crete. Topics will include the history of research and reception of Minoan material culture, as well as major issues in the study of periods from the Neolithic through the Late Bronze Age, including discussion of key sites, monuments, images, and objects. These periods witnessed the development of complex societies; emergence and eventual collapse of bureaucratic administrative institutions (i.e., the Minoan palaces); interaction and mobility in the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean; and funerary, ritual, and craft production practices that varied between regions and over time.
