Eleutherna on Crete: An Early Iron Age Site

Nicholas Stampolidis, professor of archaeology at the University of Crete, and director, Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens, explores the significance of Eleutherna, one of the capital cities of ancient Crete during the time period of the Homeric epics (ca. 1000–600 B.C.). Discover how its artifacts—made from various metals, clay, and glass—reveal connections between the city and the greater ancient world.
