A theory-informed and data-rich study of mobility and interaction at the junction between Eastern Mediterranean civilisation and Europe during the Late Bronze Age.
Francesco Iacono is a Marie Slodowska-Curie fellow at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, UK.
Iacono's informative book offers a fresh picture of the Apulian region over 700 years of the Bronze Age ... the book serves as a valuable account of the key sites and, as inferred, the society of the region. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
