Description

Studies of Mycenaean Greece often focus on the vast divide between the most powerful and the least powerful individuals: the king and the officials of the palace on the one hand, and lowly laborers on the other. Between those extremes, however, were local leaders, administrators, and skilled craftsmen whose activities we can document through texts and the archaeological record. This paper proposes a new model of Mycenaean culture that incorporates evidence about king, slaves, and the middling ranks of society.
