Handmade Burnished Ware and Prehistoric Aegean Economics
An Argument for Indigenous Appearance
Keywords:pottery, coarse ware, burnished ware, Helledic
Attempts to explain the appearance of hand-made coarse ware in the Late Bronze Age Aegean have focused on analysis of decorative or formative elements of decoration or form and not upon mode or locus of production. Furthermore, little emphasis has been placed on locating this ware within the economic context of the Late Helladic world. A reanalysis of this pottery within its context argues strongly that its appearance represents a reaction to increased subsistence difficulties for the Aegean peasant.
