Les offrandes d'époque géométrique/orientalisante dans les tombes crétoises de l'âge du bronze : problèmes et hypothèses

Abstract : Crete is known mainly for its splendid Bronze Age civilization, but archaeological interest is also growing in the historical periods of the island. In this paper the phenomenon of the "tomb-cults" (8th-7th centuries B.C.) is identified in Crete at the Bronze Age tombs of Achladia, Mochlos etc. The traces of religious activity at the circular tomb of Kamilari (Messara) are explored in detail. The evidence for the Cretan interest in the Bronze Age remembrance of the glorious Bronze Age Past. Special attention is focused on the possible relation between these votive dedications and the rise of the poleis in Crete, which is currently the subject of work-in-progress by the author.
