    Abstract:
    The collapse of palatial society at the end of the Greek Bronze Age in c.1200 BC has long been a subject of fascination and contention. This monograph re-evaluates the different theories on this collapse and possible areas of continuity, making full use of recent archaeological data as well as the latest theoretical work on collapse in the historical and archaeological record. Middleton examines the consequences of the collapse thematically, covering settlements, population mobility, rulership, elites and social structure, and looks at how these played out in both palatial and non-palatial areas. His study concentrates on mainland Greece, for the most part excluding Crete from the discussion.
