To support research on the development of a nascent Cretan polis and of cultural exchange in the Greek Aegean during the Early Iron Age. (36 months)

The project is the archaeological excavation of the Iron Age town of Azoria on the island of Crete in the Greek Aegean, exploring the development of the settlement from its Early Iron Age foundations (ca. 1200-700 B.C.) until its establishment as an urban center in the Archaic period (700-500 B.C.). This component of the project relates material patterns of crop processing and animal husbandry to models of land use and power relationships in order to identify corporate groups and to define the structure of the emerging Greek city-state (polis). The plan of work sets out to examine how the civic center was organized, how agricultural and pastoral production was managed on household and public levels, and what archaeological contexts of food storage, processing, and distribution can reveal about the social organization of the early city. The project's main objectives are to examine archaeological correlates for household and civic organization, establishing conceptual links between agricultural and pastoral production and economic structure and group identity. . . .
