This book provides the most complete overview of the Attica region from the Neolithic to the end of the Late Bronze Age. It paves the way for a new understanding of Attica in the Early Iron Age and indirectly throws new light on the origins of what will later become the polis of the Athenians.
'Athens and Attica in Prehistory emerges as a seminal work by producing ample evidence on hitherto unknown or barely known eras in the region, bringing new and important sites into focus, and exploring societal, political, economic, ideological and environmental facets through a variety of sophisticated, inter-related studies. The book also serves as a source of general insight on Attic prehistory, helping to contextualize later habitation. In sum, it is a truly impressive work and a welcome contribution to Aegean and Greek archaeology that fills a major gap in scholarship.' – Anastasia Dakouri-Hild (2021): Bryn Mawr Classical Review
