A specialised study, based on the author's thesis, of Bronze Age jewellery found in burial contexts on mainland Greece and Crete. Konstantinidi looks at the technology and craftmanship involved in the production of jewellery before presenting a typology and catalogue of examples: head, hair and neck ornaments; arm/hand ornaments. Evidence from wall paintings and the Linear B tablets are used as a point of comparison.
