2015 (English)In: The Transmission of Technical Knowledge in the Production of Ancient Mediterranean Pottery: Proceedings of the International Conferenceat the Austrian Archaeological Institute at Athens 23rd – 25th November 2012 / [ed] W. Gauss, G. Klebinder-Gauss & C. von Rüden, 2015, 225-237 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The introduction of novel ideas and skills in pottery manufacture at the settlements of Kastri, Kolonna, and Lernaare used to illustrate how different potting traditions in the Bronze Age Aegean intersected. The insertion of foreignceramic traits into previously established production environments are discussed as examples of acceptance (Kastri),rejection (Kolonna), and mediation (Lerna) in an attempt to nuance the complex process of ›Minoanization‹ in theAegean Bronze Age.
