'Connectivity and Globalization in the Bronze Age of Anatolia

Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in BuchBeitrag in Buch/SammelbandPeer Reviewed


The western Asian Bronze Age has long been recognized as a time of significant connectivity (Kohl 1987; Davies and Schofield 1995; Cline and Harris-Cline 1998). This connectivity varied both quantitatively and qualitatively, but generally there was a high level of inter-regional interaction throughout the period. The Bronze Age of western Asia therefore presents itself as a good candidate for premodern globalization, as defined by several authors in this volume (e.g. Feinman; Jennings; Knappett). This chapter investigates the extent to which various connectivities evident in the western Asian Bronze Age might be considered as globalization, and reflects on what may be learned from them for the study of globalization in archaeology more broadly.
