Title: Territoriality and Politics in the Prehistoric and Classical Aegean

Publisher: American Anthropological Association
Abstract: Classical archaeologists are familiar with boundaries, because in Greco Roman society they are itemized in historical sources and inscriptions, as well as visible through stone boundary markers. I examine evidence for formal territoriality (emphasizing restricted access to parts of the landscape) in earlier and later periods of ancient Greece to determine how far back in time political territoriality (the exercise of power over the landscape) began and to examine how it changed following the Classical era.
