This volume traces the changing patterns of settlement and cycles of social complexity from the Late Neolithic period to the present day within the heartland of the state of Phaistos in southern Crete. The archaeological, geological, botanical, environmental, ethnographic, and historical studies of this project establish the regional identity of the Western Mesara and define changing man-land relationships through time. Using a combination of empirical, processual, and post-processual theoretical approaches, this volume investigates a central problem: how and why did the Bronze Age and Classical states arise at Phaistos?"--BOOK JACKET." ;
