Présentation en anglais

This volume

This volume brings together a series of papers reflecting a number of lectures given at the Université
catholique de Louvain (UCL) in 2010-2012 in the frame of a seminar entitled La naissance des cités crétoises.
Eight Cretan sites (Axos, Phaistos, Prinias, Karphi, Dreros, Azoria, Praisos, and Itanos), recently excavated
or re-excavated, are considered in their regional and historical context in order to explore the origin and
early development of the Greek city-state on the island.

The series AEGIS (Aegean Interdisciplinary Studies) attempts to make the results of new archaeological
research on Aegean and especially Minoan societies available to the scientific and wider public at a rapid
pace. Monographs. PhD dissertations, proceedings of scientific meetings and excavation reports complete
each other to offer a general view of this time frame which is of primary importance to understand the
ancient world and its historical, political, symbolical and social sequences.
