Working from Home: Assessing the Significance of Specialized Craft Production Based in Households in the Aegean Bronze Age

Lecturer: Natalie Abell

During the Aegean Bronze Age (ca. 3000-1100 BCE), there is abundant evidence for craft production that took place not in centralized administrative palaces but rather in workshops and houses that do not appear to have been under direct palatial oversight. This presentation examines how we can assess whether such production was “specialized” (i.e., targeted for exchange), and suggests that examining the networks that connected non-palatial producers and consumers offers valuable insights into how Aegean economy and society changed over time.
