|Abstract: ||Recent excavations and exploration have contributed new and crucial information warranting a review of our earlier understanding of Bronze Age Aegean harboursides, especially of the topographical conditions and geographical locations selected by the Aegeans. Major sites which can be cited are Kea, Kommos, Zakros, and Amnisos. Further information derives from precious pictorial depictions of coastal towns and possible harbours, as in frescoes found at Kea and, especially, in the West House at Akrotiri, or in the recently published sealing from Chania.
The paper will discuss this new material and address questions of defence, ship storage, relations with inland towns, trade, relative water-levels, and the nature of the possible harbour installations during the Middle and Late Bronze Age in the Aegean.|
