Economy of Non-Elite Mycenaeans

Project description

Beyond palaces: Looking at local Mycenaean economy

The Late Bronze Age era in Greece conjures images of powerful Mycenaean palace complexes and rich elite burials. The role of the non-elite population in these economies is only recently beginning to attain the focus it deserves. The EcoNoMy project will use isotope analyses from bone, food and environmental debris to formulate alternative narratives and revive discussion on non-palatial societies. Focusing on abounding evidence of Western Greek excavations that point to an advanced trade network with the Adriatic and the Balkans, EcoNoMy will introduce combined hi-tech methodologies that can be adapted to comprehensively reconstruct the economy of ancient regional communities.
