Abstract

In this paper we pursue a novel transdisciplinary approach to the question of cultural dynamics, focussing particularly on the transmission of cultural traits across socio-physical space. Using ideas from statistical physics, we start from known archaeological sites to create networks representing possible macroscopic interactions of the prehistoric Aegean (specifically the Middle and early Late Bronze Age).
