Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
In this work the author explores the pre-historical defensive architecture in Crete by discerning five types of architectural feature: enclosure walls, tower-like structures; 'guard houses' and guardrooms. Before presenting the materials and analyses, the author outlines the history of the research, lists the existing findings of the surface survey (especially in connection with discoveries of defensive architecture) and discusses the questions of methodology.
