Overview

In the past, Bronze Age painted plaster in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean has been studied from a range of different but isolated viewpoints. One of the current questions about this material is its direction of transfer. This volume brings technological, iconographic and other approaches closer together by completing certain gaps in the literature on technology, and by investigating how and why technological transfer has developed and what broader impact this had on the wider social dynamics of the late Middle Bronze Age and Late Bronze Age in the eastern Mediterranean.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is an extremely important piece of research that opens up new vistas in the study of painted plaster in the ancient Aegean and its influence and appearance throughout the eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age." - American Journal of Archaeology "The originality of the book relies on its subtitle, the 'painted plaster', where the author has to offer first-hand observations." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
