Therasia II. Historicizing Prehistory: The historical and epistemological context of the archaeological discovery on Therasia in 1866.

A series of studies on the historical and epistemological context of the archaeological discovery on Therasia in 1866, the first in the Aegean, at the time of the volcanic eruption. The unprecedented phenomena, both archaeological and geological, inspired geologists and archaeologists to collaborate on the development of new, mainly evolutionary theories on the pre-hellenic past.

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.

Vrysinas I - Minoan Artistic Landscapes. The vases with applied plastic figures from the Vrysinas Peak Sanctuary and the quest for depth.

by Iris Tzachili

The starting-point of this study is a series of vases from the Vrysinas Peak Sanctuary with applied plastic decoration representing landscapes, currently presented as unique to this site. There is also reference to the clay figurines with depictions of rocks, trees and animals from the same site. The finds, the methods of artistic representation and other similar Minoan finds are analysed, before moving on to other categories of Minoan artwork with representations of landscapes. There is extensive discussion of the concept of perspective, the quest for depth and the form this quest assumes in Minoan contexts.
