In the West Gate area excavation continued in the west part of the building. The excavations on the Lower Acropolis of Midea in and were undertaken with the help of grants from the Institute for Aegean Prehistory, for which we are most grateful. We thank the Director Mrs Anna Banaka, as well as the archaeologists, conservators and guards of the Argolid Ephorate for their help.

We also thank the archaeolo. The excavations at the Mycenaean citadel of Midea, under the auspices of the Swedish Institute in Athens, are divided into three areas: the East Gate area, the West Gate area, and the lower terraces, where deposits are deeper than on the eroded surface of the hill.

Mycenaean Acropolis of Midea. The prominent position of Midea between Mycenaean centres of Argolida has been focusing emphasis by researchers of the Mycenaean civilization. Midea is considered as the third most important fortified Mycenaean Acropolis of Argolida, after Mycenae and Tiryns.

The cyclopean fortifications, the findings of recent excavations, the position of the mythology and its connection with the extensive Mycenaean cemetery in the neighbouring Dendra, rank Midea. These he attributed to a palace. In the Greek-Swedish collaboration began in Midea with a small trial excavation near the East Gate.

Excavations in the Acropolis were resumed in and have continued since then systematically under the direction of Dr Katie Demakopoulou and Prof. Paul Astroem. Excavations conducted on the Lower Terraces of the Acropolis of Midea from to yielded a significant amount of Post–Bronze Age, mainly ceramic, material (Figs.

Stockholm: Paul Aström; hardback £ Oliver Dickinson (a1). The excavations are lavishly illustrated with plenty of photographs and sketches although placing 5 or more photographs on the same page does not help the identification of features reproduced at a too small scale.

The presentation of the stratigraphy (chapter II, p. ), although itself of great value, could have been done differently. The acropolis of Midea was, together with Mycenae and Tiryns, one of the three main Mycenaean centres in Argolis. Its importance is demonstrated by its impressive cyclopean defences, its place in mythology, the rich necropolis in neighbouring Dendra and the finds from excavations of the site, which began in and, after a long break, have been going on systematically for the last twenty years.

Since no bronze cuirass had previously been found in excavations, scholars had believed until then that Homer was being anachronistic when he described the Greeks fighting at Troy dressed in such armour.

The Dendra cuirass was a great surprise to many of them. The acropolis of Midea is situated not far from the cemetery. The Elevator at The Acropolis. A lot of people wonder if The Acropolis is wheelchair friendly or indeed if anyone with a disability, limited mobility or even just the elderly can visit the Acropolis.

Well, there is an elevator but it has closed and reopened several times in the past few years. Midea reached its height in the Mycenaean period, notably in the 14th and 13th centuries BC, with the establishment of the great fortified acropolis.

The excavations brought to light extensive and significant Mycenaean architectural remains all over the site. Also found were abundant fine and coarse pottery, terracotta figures and figurines. In this definitive book, prominent archaeologist John M. Camp presents an up-to-date survey of the monuments of ancient Athens and Attica to create a complete archaeological tour of the area.

Camp's lavishly illustrated work will appeal not only to scholars and students of Greek civilization but also to visitors exploring the ancient sites."A masterful interdisciplinary compendium. Asine II -- Results of the Excavations East of the AcropolisFasc.

General Overviews. These books offer an introduction to the Acropolis, its monuments, votive dedications, and ritual practices. Brouskari and Rhodes primarily focus on the Classical period while Hurwit and Holtzmann employ a diachronic approach that explores the Bronze Age remains, the development of the sanctuary, myths and cults of Athena, and the postclassical.
