The Mediterranean's Iron Age period was one of its most dynamic eras. Stimulated by the movement of individuals and groups on an unprecedented scale, the first half of the first millennium BCE witnesses the development of Mediterranean-wide practices, including related writing systems, common features of urbanism, and shared artistic styles and techniques, alongside the evolution of wide-scale trade. Together, these created an engaged, interlinked and interactive Mediterranean. We can recognise this as the Mediterranean's first truly globalising era. This volume introduces students and scholars to contemporary evidence and theories surrounding the Mediterranean from the eleventh century until the end of the seventh century BCE to enable an integrated understanding of the multicultural and socially complex nature of this incredibly vibrant period.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
‘I would recommend the volume to anyone who wants a wide-scope analysis of the Iron Age in the Mediterranean. It contains material that is useful to postgraduates and graduate students, but it is also written clearly enough to be used in lower-level classes. It would make a great addition to any class that wants to break out of the single-culture-centric viewpoint.’ David B. Small, American Journal of ArchaeologySee more reviews
'This well-written, thought-provoking volume will be of most interest to advanced students and scholars with substantial backgrounds in the archaeology of the period. Highly recommended.' W. Kotter, Choice
‘The book is methodically organised, shows good editorial quality, and several illustrations enrich the author’s words throughout the book … this book is the result of a broad and ambitious work, carefully argued: it will undoubtedly become an important reference.’ Arianna Esposito, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
