‘Uncovering the ancient Cycladic Culture: Part 2: Middle to Late Cycladic periods (2000—1000 BCE)’ by Dr Christopher A. Tuttle

This second lecture will discuss the evolution of the Cycladic Culture that had taken place during the first 1,000 years after their origins. We will explore the next 1,000 years of Cycladic Culture expansionism and the effects that contact with other regional cultures appear to have had on them. Finally, we will delve into the question of their ultimate fate as a distinct socio-cultural entity.
