Abstract

This volume is intended to be the first in a series that will focus on the origin of script
and the boundaries of non-scribal communication media in proto-literate and literate
societies. Over the last 30 years, the domain of scribes and bureaucrats has become much
better known. Our goal now is to reach below the élite and scribal levels to interface with
non-scribal operations conducted by people of the «middling» sort. Who made these
marks and to what purpose? Did they serve private or (semi-) official roles in Bronze
Age Aegean society? The comparative study of such practices in the contemporary East
(Cyprus, Anatolia, the Levant, and Egypt) can shed light on sub-elite activities in the
Aegean and also provide evidence for cultural and economic exchange networks
