Following Oliver Dickinson’s successful The Aegean Bronze Age, this textbook is a synthesis of the period between the collapse of the Bronze Age civilization in the thirteenth and twelfth centuries BC, and the rise of the Greek civilization in the eighth century BC. With chapter bibliographies, distribution maps and illustrations, Dickinson’s detailed examination of material and archaeological evidence argues that many characteristics of Ancient Greece developed in the Dark Ages. He also includes up-to-date coverage of the 'Homeric question'. This highly informative text focuses on: the reasons for the Bronze Age collapse which brought about the Dark Ages the processes that enabled Greece to emerge from the Dark Ages the degree of continuity from the Dark Ages to later times. Dickinson has provided an invaluable survey of this period that will not only be useful to specialists and undergraduates in the field, but that will also prove highly popular with the interested general reader.

The Vienna workshops on LH III C Chronology and Synchronisms serve the purpose of developing a generally applicable chronological framework of the LH III C period and contributing to a better understanding of the history of this important phase of the early history of Greece. The third workshop was dedicated to the last phases of the Mycenaean civilisation and the transition to the Protogeometric period. Apart from the presentation of mostly unpublished materials from old and new excavations, the proceedings of this workshop contains contributions to many subjects concerning the transition from the Late Bronze to the Early Iron Ages. Several speakers pointed out that the end of the Mycenaean civilisation and the transition to the Early Iron Age expressed itself by different cultural phenomena in the various regions of Greece. One of the main topics was the much-debated question of whether or not there existed a so-called Submycenaean period, and if so, how it should be defined. Moreover, a new proposal for the absolute chronology of the end of the Late Bronze Age is suggested, which will certainly raise a lively discussion.
