Title: Aspects of Late Helladic sea trade
Author: Bachhuber, Christoph Stephen
Abstract: The trade mechanisms joining the Mycenaean Aegean to the greater Levant have intrigued and eluded Bronze Age scholarship since the earliest discoveries of foreign objects in Mycenaean burials . In the past decade , topics of interregional trade in the eastern Mediterranean have enjoyed renewed discussions , inspired in no small part by the excavation of the Uluburun shipwreck . Data generated from the shipwreck is amounting to an extraordinary body of evidence for contact between the Aegean and the Near East . The proposed Mycenaean presence on board the Uluburun ship requires that the sum of evidence and hypotheses for trade between the two regions be re -examined . By attempting to demonstrate the role the Mycenaeans had performed on the last journey of the Uluburun ship , an important mechanism of trade may be revealed between the Aegean and Semitic worlds .
