Mycenaean Wall Painting in Context - New Discoveries, Old Finds Reconsidered

Hariclia Brecoulaki, Jack L. Davis, Sharon R. Stocker (eds.)

Athens: National Hellenic Research Foundation, 2015. Brand new. Meletemata Series, No. 72. In English. Hard cover, 28 cm, 404 pp., ill.; net weight 2050 gr. ISBN: 978-960-9538-34-3. During the recent decades many new Mycenaean wall paintings have been brought to light and older finds have been restored and reconstructed afresh in light of newly found joining fragments. These paintings derive both from palatial and non-palatial contexts, from major centers on the mainland (including Mycenae, Tiryns, Argos, Pylos, Thebes, Orchomenos, and Gla) and from recently excavated sites, such as Iklaina in Messenia. However, in contrast to the corpora of Minoan and Cycladic wall paintings, Mycenaean paintings have survived in poor physical condition. For the most part, they are highly fragmentary and lack iconographic and contextual coherence. This lavishly illustrated book, including many full-page details, offers an up to date insight into new discoveries of Mycenaean wall painting and new iconographic interpretations of old material, excavated long ago but never properly published. It is therefore likely to fill a large gap in our knowledge of Mycenaean wall painting and Aegean wall painting in general, and help us to gain a better understanding of the visual language of Mycenaean painting and of how it was employed in the murals that adorned Mycenaean buildings.

Archaeological Atlas of Mycenae

Sp. Iakovidis, E.B. French, et al

The Archaeological Society at Athens Library Series, No. 229. In English. Soft cover, 31 cm, 136 pp., 12 col. maps, 9 col. plans, 27 figs.; net weight 1560 gr. Maps of ancient Mycenae, on which are marked ancient ruins, excavated or still visible: tombs, walls, streets, buildings. The precursor of this great work was "Karten von Mykenai", published in Berlin by Bernard Steffen and Habbo Gerhard Lolling (1888-1894): "Karten von Mykenai" contained only two maps, one of the citadel (scale 1:750) and one of the wider region of Mycenae (scale 1:12500). The new mapping is divided into two parts: the first contains the region of Mycenae in 12 sheets (scale 1:5000) and the other one smaller maps, which contain areas with high density of ancient relics. The second part contains the citadel of Mycenae in a single sheet on a scale 1:1000. This sheet is analyzed to other sheets which contain parts of the general, on a scale 1:400. The Atlas maps are accompanied by an extensive memorandum, which consists of systematic studies on the topography and monuments of Mycenae (by Spyros Iakovides, Elizabeth French, Kim Shelton, J. Lavery, Ch. Ioannides and A. Jansen). These papers include a chronicle of old Mycenae descriptions by travelers, special bibliography and chronological tables. The citadel is also described as a whole, as well as the excavated area, the geology of Mycenae, the ancient system of roads in the area, the houses, the chambered tombs. The rich general bibliography completes the Atlas. . . . ============================================================== IMPORTANT: The price does NOT include the shipping cost which depends on actual weight and destination.
