This course offers an in-depth interpretative exploration within a broadly chronological framework of the Late Bronze Age Aegean in its broader Mediterranean context. It focuses primarily on the formation (during the Shaft Grave period) and nature of Mycenaean palacecentred polities. Social and political structures, economic organisation, and ritual and religious dimensions are analysed through material culture, art and deciphered Linear B texts. Mycenaean interaction with the remainder of the Aegean and the wider eastern and central Mediterranean is also explored. The final part of this course covers the collapse of these palatial societies, the transition to the world of the Iron Age, and the generation of Homeric epic.

1.4 Methods of assessment
This course is assessed by means of two essays, each of c. 2000 words, and each of which contributes an equal 50% to the final mark for the course. Provisional deadlines, to be discussed and confirmed in the first session, are: Essay 1: Monday March 18th Essay 2: Monday April 22nd
1.5 Teaching methods
This course comprises 17 1-hour lectures and 3 1-hour discussion tutorials in which the ideas presented in the lectures can be reviewed, consolidated, questioned and debated.
There are 17 hours of lectures and 3 hours of tutorials in this course. In addition, students will be expected to undertake around 100 hours of reading, plus 68 hours preparing for and producing the assessed work. This adds up to a total workload of some 188 hours for the course.
This course has no prerequisites, and no knowledge of foreign languages is required. However, it may be an advantage, in terms of easing comprehension of the material and ideas presented, to have already taken one or more courses in Mediterranean, Greek, Egyptian or Western Asian archaeology at a first- or second/third-year level. If you have a chance to visit Aegean sites and museums (or join fieldwork) before or after taking this course, it can only improve the overall experience.
