IMAGE: Frying Pans More definite interactions are seen with the Cycladic islands – so-called Frying Pans Produced only in the Cyclades, and found almost always in graves On the mainland, they appear in domestic settings – does their function change? Not known how or why they were imported to the mainland, but they document trade/interaction Specific mainland sites seem to have preferred specific types E.g., Frying pans at Tsoungiza have barred handles – not found except in Cyclades Sites at Tsoungiza, Asea, Cyclades have star pattern stamped on exterior – not in Attica Suggests that individual sites have their own trading partners (and preferences) Not that the culture as a whole is importing and then distributing a specific product IMAGE 34: Kernos multiple vase clay handmade painted fired in kiln unknown ritual meaning 21

Harrison/CLAS 267 Lect 3 (2013) - IMAGE 35: Hedgehog Cycladic potters were also very interested in zoomorphic pottery Much like their counterparts on Crete who made pots and stone vases Popular motif was the terracotta hedgehog who holds a small bowl He is hollow, like cow creamer These are found in different centers – represent naturalism and wit of Cycladic artists IMAGE 38: Melos, ‘granary’ possibility of rise of communal warehouses, storage areas might be reflected in stone model from Melos Another innovation at this time is the development of a long apsidal or rectangular house Will become a standard architectural form in later Bronze Age periods Will become the Megaron Encouraged growth of elite within a society Especially prominent are those who control access to the raw materials those who employed the artists to make the objects from them o ie., first evidence of craft specialisation 22

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
