Vrysinas II - The Pottery of the 1972-1973 excavation
This volume is the second in the series of published archaeological material from the Vrysinas Peak Sanctuary, covering the pottery from the 1972-73 excavation. Apart from the basic presentation of the pottery via illustrations, photographs and descriptions, and of its chronological and typological context, the main themes developed are the analysis of human activity at the site as evidenced by the pottery (e.g. large-scale communal meals), the offerings of material and immaterial goods (the ritual), and the visitors' origins.

Textiles and Dress in Grece and the Roman East: A Technological and Social Approach.

Edited by Iris Tzachili and Eleni Zimi

Dress, textiles and their production process are a difficult scientific venture to embark upon, due to the complexity of the subject. They present many different aspects and touch on a wide variety of social sectors, such as the economy, technique, raw materials, commerce, fashion and symbolisms of all kinds. This is even more the case when the period covered is the Roman era in Greece, a multifarious and little-studied time influenced both by the weight of Classical tradition and by the new mores and customs spreading throughout the empire.

This volume contains the presentations from a conference jointly organized by the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Crete, and the Department of History, Archaeology and Cultural Resources Management of the University of Peloponnese, held in Kalamata. The papers touch upon technical and social issues based on archaeological and written sources regarding weaving and dress, and shed light on different aspects of a particularly complex process.
