Welcome to the personal website of Dr Andrea Vianello, an archaeologist specialised in Aegean and Mediterranean archaeology. You can find here some information on my past and current academic activities, and a few papers. I am the subject reviewer in archaeology for Intute at the University of Oxford, where you can find a lot of my Internet-related work, including a splendid catalogue of useful websites, podcasts, virtual training suite (VTS, also available to download), and a blog (list of posts). I started a new blog for occasional extended comments on a variety of topics. The two venues may merge, but the aims are different (one is part of Intute and edited accordingly and the other is for personal comments).
I have co-organised a session at the recent 15th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) in Riva del Garda. More information on the session Movements across and along water within landmasses. An edited volume is being prepared.
You can find my two most recent (2012 and 2013) presentations at the EAA in the conferences section. The 2012 presentation is entitled Funerary Consumption and Symbolism of Exotica in Mycenaean Greece. The 2013 one is entitled Entangled Aegean-type wares.
Check out my page at Amazon. Please note, I do not favour any particular bookshop or market seller. My works can be purchased in most bookshops, online and on the high streets.
An updated version of the Gazetteer originally published in Late Bronze Age Mycenaean and Italic Products in the West Mediterranean. A Social and Economic Analysis is now available. The Gazetteer is useful also if you are interested in the topic and have not seen the book yet.
A new edited book entitled Exotica in the Prehistoric Mediterranean has been published by Oxbow Books and is out now. The book contains several peer-reviewed papers and some colour pictures too.
My initial website is now archived and can be downloaded as a PDF file.
Feel free to look around and if you have any comments contact me.
