AegeaNet is a discussion and news group on the pre-classical Aegean world from Palaeolithic to Homer and beyond. AegeaNet was born in December 1993 (as firstname.lastname@example.org), was announced at the annual meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America in Washington D.C. on 29 December, and moved to the University of Kansas (email@example.com) on 20 February 2002. At present it has over 800 subscribers. The purpose of AegeaNet is to facilitate discussion, initiate and test new ideas, and explore possibilities in the world of the Aegean Bronze Age. Ideas, musings and queries, sample arguments, fully developed theses, and even entire drafts of papers are welcome.
