Most scholars now believe that warfare in ancient societies can only be interpreted and understood from studying a broad range of data types. This edited volume, the Actes de la 7 Rencontre egenee internationale at Liege in 1998, covers many different aspects of warfare in the Bronze Age Aegean, with forty-nine papers grouped under headings: The general context; Minoan Crete; Mycenaean Greece; Fortifications; Religious aspects; Funerary aspects; Iconography; Sources of writing and administration; Arms and armament; The war. This book makes an important contribution to the study of ancient warfare.
