"Dickinson's balanced and sensible book fills the need for a general treatment of the Aegean Bronze Age that takes into account new findings and advances in archaeological theory....Dickinson is clear, sound on details, and up on new findings, and he does not display idiosyncracies or rancor, even when discussing hotly debated issues....An absolute must for all libraries--if limited to only one book on the Bronze Age cultures of Greece, it should be this one." Choice
The Aegean Bronze Age saw the rise and fall of the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations. The region's cultural history emerges through a series of thematic chapters that examine settlement, economy, crafts, exchange and foreign contact, religion and burial customs.

To my mind the subject of trade is key to this book.
It is written a scholarly fashion yet is approachable. From the archeological evidence theories are offered but the authors do not force any one position but offer them all in a level headed fashion.
You will find yourself reading it from cover to cover but cherishing it as a reference.
