This course provides an intensive introduction to the archaeology of the Aegean region, primarily during the Bronze Age (ca. 3000-1000 BCE). We will focus on key debates in Aegean prehistory, including the growth, development, and collapse of the complex societies of Crete and mainland Greece, that is, the Minoan and Mycenaean palaces.
