Excavation, technical analysis, and interpretation of archaeological finds at Bronze-Age Iklaina on the southern Peloponnesus. (36 months)

The project examines the emergence of states and social complexity in Greece, through a systematic interdisciplinary investigation of the earliest recorded state, that of Pylos. We seek to analyze the specific mechanisms that led to the unification of regional centers of power (chiefdoms) into the centralized state of Pylos during the beginning of the Late Bronze Age (c. 1600-1100 BC). This will be done through the study of one of those chiefdoms-turned districts of the state of Pylos and its relation to the main capital of the state.
