The essays contained in this issue focus on ancient Greece and
adjacent areas:

an update on Mycenaean language and texts

Universitaet, Marburg) reviews recent research in the archaeology of
western Anatolia, which has ramifications for the prehistory of Greece
- Mark Hall (Archaeological Research Facility, UC Berkeley) discusses
advances in radiocarbon dating and suggests what this new work
may mean for dating prehistoric Greece.

In "Report from the Field", Igor Manzura and Mark Tkachuk write on their
Moldovan excavation that may represent a significant new
Sarmatian site.
