Summary note
The symbolic images of the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age [c. 1300-525 B.C.] that were widespread in the central and western Mediterranean offer a broad base for the understanding of the inter-cultural communications and the alleged spread of ideas and knowledge throughout the area. This book comprises the first comprehensive, comparative analysis of iconographical records from Sardinia, Southwest Iberia, Corsica and Sicily within their archaeological context of the intense contacts that had emerged in the Mediterranean during the Bronze Age. Settlement archaeology, monument building, funeral rites and religious ritual as well as local economic approaches in these four regions, which were connected by a network of anchorages, are also examined and compared.
