Preliminary results indicate that the Middle Helladic period seems to have started earlier and lasted longer than traditionally assumed.
Further, at the present stage of our investigation we can give also a very tentative time frame for the Santorini volcanic eruption which seems to be in agreement with the science derived VDL date.
This early copper phase is commonly thought of as part of the Bronze Age, though true bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, was used only rarely at first.
During the 2nd millennium the use of true bronze greatly increased; the tin deposits at Cornwall, England, were much used and were responsible for a considerable part of the large production of bronze objects at that time.
It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.Due to its position next to the maritime cross roads between central mainland Greece, the northeast Peloponnese, the Cyclades and Crete, the island played an important role in the trade between these regions.In the course of new excavations, which focused on the exploration of the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Age at Kolonna, several short lived samples from different settlement phases have been C sequence is one of the longest existing so far for the Aegean Bronze Age, and therefore of major importance for the absolute Bronze Age chronology in this region.This paper presents results of the first investigation and the absolute dating of stratigraphic sequences of a prehistoric settlement site in the Bakırçay valley, Western Turkey.The geomorphological and stratigraphical investigations focus on the settlement at the Yeni Yeldeğirmentepe, a small volcanic hill within the Bakırçay flood plain.“At the beginning of the Early Bronze III period, the urbanisation process revitalised itself.
