Architecture of Minoan Crete: Construction Identity in the Aegean Bronze Age (Book)
Title: Architecture of Minoan Crete: Construction Identity in the Aegean Bronze Age
Author: John C. McEnroe
Abstract: Architecture of Minoan Crete is the first comprehensive study of the entire range of Minoan architecture--including houses, palaces, tombs, and cities--from 7000 BC to 1100 BC. John C. McEnroe synthesizes the vast literature on Minoan Crete, with particular emphasis on the important discoveries of the past twenty years, to provide an up-to-date account of Minoan architecture. His accessible writing style, skillful architectural drawings of houses and palaces, site maps, and color photographs make this book inviting for general readers and visitors to Crete, as well as scholars.

Histories of Peirene: A Corinthian Fountain in Three Millenia (Book)
Title: Histories of Peirene: A Corinthian Fountain in Three Millenia
Author: Betsey A. Robinson
Abstract: Histories of Peirene is organized into two parts: “The Spring and Its Legacy” (four chapters) and “Biography of the Fountain” (seven chapters). Part I introduces readers to the Peirene Fountain both as it was and as it is now, incorporating architecture and hydrology. The mythological origins of the fountain are examined next along with its depictions in art and mentions in poetry. The third and fourth chapters are dedicated to exploration of the initial excavation of Peirene and Bert Hodge Hill’s efforts to excavate and to publish it. Part II details how Peirene changed over time both architecturally and in its usage ranging from its early construction to its romanization to its Byzantine and Ottoman decline.

This multivolume reference work is a comprehensive overview of the major cultures of the classical Mediterranean world--Greek, Hellenistic, and Roman--from the Bronze Age to the fifth century CE. It also covers the legacy of the classical world and its interpretation and influence in subsequent centuries. The Encyclopedia brings the work of the best classical scholars, archaeologists, and historians together in an easy-to-use format. The articles, written by leading scholars in the field, seek to convey the significance of the people, places, and historical events of classical antiquity, together with its intellectual and material culture.

The Olympic Altis Before the Temple of Zeus (Article)
Title: The Olympic Altis Before the Temple of Zeus
Author: Dr. Judith Barringer
Abstract: The two pediments and twelve metopes adorning the Temple of Zeus at Olympia of ca. 470-456 B.C. have been the subject of scholarly inquiry since their discovery in the 19th century. These inquiries tend to treat the sculptural elements separately from each other, or largely detached from their Olympic context, and to interpret the sculptures as negative admonitions about hubris and consequent justice, or about dike and arete, or as political allegories. The present study examines the sculptures as a programmatic unity intimately connected with Olympia and the activities that occurred there and argues that, contrary to previous interpretations, the sculptures were created to serve as positive models to inspire and exhort Olympic athletes to deeds of honor and glory.

Travel and Greek Identity in the Time of Hadrian (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Travel and Greek Identity in the Time of Hadrian
Abstract: Tea Talk at the ASCSA examines Pausanias’ arrangement and expression of his material and evaluates his authorial choices in light of the contemporary literary currents of the day and the cultural milieu of the Roman Empire in the time of Hadrian and the Antonines. The descriptions offered in the Periegesis Hellados are also examined in the context of the archaeo- logical evidence available for the places Pausanias visited. This study reveals Pausanias to be a surprisingly sophisticated literary craftsman and a unique witness to Greek identity at a time when that identity was never more conflicted.

The Settlement on the Kastro at Kavousi in the Late Geometric Period (Book Section)
Title: The Settlement on the Kastro at Kavousi in the Late Geometric Period
Author: Professor Margaret Mook
Editor: A. Mazarakis Ainian
Abstract: The excavations on the Kastro, in the northeastern Isthmus of Ierapetra near Kavousi, have revealed remains from a substantial phase of settlement belonging to the Late Geometric period. This settlement is composed primarily of multi-room houses built on naturally and artificially terraced slopes. House sizes and plans vary widely across the site: some structures were new foundations in Late Geometric, while others were established in the Protogeometric period and continued to be used, usually with some modification. This paper 1) identifies the Late Geometric houses and exterior spaces; 2) examines other structures whose function may not have been primarily domestic; 3) assesses the factors that may have impacted the plans, sizes and locations of buildings in the settlement; and 4) suggests access routes through the settlement. Explication of the Late Geometric settlement on the Kastro will reveal aspects of social organization and enhance our understanding of conditions that contributed to the process of urbanization on Crete.

The Early Iron Age-Archaic Transition in Crete: The Evidence from Recent Excavations at Azoria, Eastern Crete (Book Section)
Title: The Early Iron Age-Archaic Transition in Crete: The Evidence from Recent Excavations at Azoria, Eastern Crete
Author: Donald C. Haggis
Author: Professor Margaret Mook
Editor: A. Mazarakis Ainian
Abstract: The paper presents the goals and results of excavations at the Early Iron Age and Archaic site of Azoria in northeastern Crete. Recent excavations at the site (2002-2006) demonstrate that the seventh century B.C. was an important period of culture change in which the Early Iron Age landscape was substantially transformed. The formalization of civic architecture and the reorganization of civic and domestic space are linked to the changing economics of food provisioning in the civic sphere and differentiation of processing and consumption patterns in various domestic and civic contexts. Public places such as an andreion, temple, and an early civic banquet hall were communal, but each was also to some degree exclusionary, serving to order the status of households and clans, and modes of social interaction. New civic buildings seem to form new contexts for elite consumption, negotiating political power, and asserting or claiming social identity in the early city. The paper focuses on the diachronic changes in the formal structure of the site, economic systems, and social organization from the Early Iron Age until the establishment of the city in the seventh and sixth centuries B.C.

Zeus and Olympia (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Zeus and Olympia
Author: Dr. Judith Barringer
Abstract: To what extent do cult, myth, place in the (local) pantheon, and genre determine the nature of a divinity? And how do the Greek gods function in their polytheistic system? But also: how did the Greek views change? What was the influence of philosophy? In what way do the gods in later antiquity differ from those in classical Greece ? In short, the aim of the conference is to acquire a synchronic and diachronic view of the gods as they functioned in Greek culture before the triumph of Christianity.
