Description

Chapter 2 examines how Early Bronze Age settlements and societies interacted with the landscapes they inhabited. It presents an overview of subsistence economies, palaeoenvironmental data, settlement patterns, metallurgical industries, and other potential activities that could have had anthropogenic impacts on landscapes. The discussion considers the impacts caused by the demands of agriculture, horticulture, pastoralism and timber. Unprecedented crowding of mixed-farming settlements in alluvial plains was a cause and effect of these impacts. Chapter 2 ends with a case study that focuses on the citadel of EBA Troy in its regional and landscape setting, and begin to consider the ascendance of citadel elites within these environmental and demographic contexts.
