Travellers in Time : Imagining Movement in the Ancient Aegean World, Hardback Book

Travellers in Time : Imagining Movement in the Ancient Aegean World Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Archaeology series


Travellers in Time re-evaluates the extent to which the earliest Mediterranean civilizations were affected by population movement.

It critiques both traditional culture-history-grounded notions of movement in the region as straightforwardly transformative, and the processual, systemic models that have more recently replaced this view, arguing that newer scholarship too often pays limited attention to the specific encounters, experiences and agents involved in travel. By assessing a broad range of recent archaeological and ancient textual data from the Aegean and central and east Mediterranean via five comprehensive studies, this book makes a compelling case for rethinking issues such as identity, agency, materiality and experience through an understanding of movement as transformative. This innovative and timely study will be of interest to advanced undergraduates, postgraduate students and scholars in the fields of Aegean/Mediterranean prehistory and Classical archaeology, as well as anyone interested in ancient Aegean and Mediterranean culture.
