Critical Approaches to Cypriot and Wider Mediterranean Archaeology
Sturt W. Manning [+–]
This volume brings together scholars to reflect on the pioneering work of Professor A. Bernard Knapp, to explore the impact of – and to consider and confront the challenges and questions posed by – his extensive scholarship. Knapp is a central, generation-defining figure in the pre- and proto-history of the Mediterranean, and the essays in this volume will be of interest to a wide range of scholars and students of the region.
Topics include studies of sites, places, materials and texts in the Levant, Cyprus, Crete, Greece and Sicily, and wider critiques of theory and method addressing themes of connectivity and mobility, maritime archaeology, landscapes, climate and environment, and publication history and practice in the overall Mediterranean field. The authors comprise a mixture of senior, mid-career and rising junior scholars, from various backgrounds, who offer a broad range of perspectives on the state and future of the archaeology of Cyprus and the wider Mediterranean.
