Summary This remarkable volume examines the built environment and aspects of domestic material culture of the Late Byzantine/Frankish, Ottoman and Early Modern Cyclades in the Aegean (13th-20th centuries). On the basis of primary archaeological data gathered by the Cyclades Research Project, the author reconstructs everyday domestic life in towns and villages. He also identifies socio-cultural identities that shaped or were reflected in the pre-Modern material remains and analyzes the history of island landscapes through the study of certain aspects of material culture, including settlement layout (fortified settlements and undefended nucleated villages), domestic buildings (housing of urban character, peasant housing and farmsteads), ceramics (locally produced and imported glazed tableware), internal fittings (built structures and mobile fittings) as well as clothing (male and female dress codes)
Notes "This book originally appeared as a Ph. D. thesis ... at the University of Leiden ... 2005.
