Thats pretty sweet. Hopefully the full article is good stuff (it's not out yet). I am a subscriber to PopArch, and the online version can be a pain in the butt for members, since the images are linked to a flickr account, and if you try to expand the images, it won't let you. Sometimes. Kind of annoying. Otherwise great stuff and a steal for 9 bucks a year, with access to past issues.

Looking forward to seeing it!

Looking back at an argument for a Mycenaean-age Trojan War; that the list of ships that took part in the attack came from places like Pylos that were nothing but rubble in Homer's time, I am beginning to think that this Geometric-era war was glorified by Homer by invoking ancient memories from the Mycenaean age to give it more gravity and pomp. The practice of cremation, descriptions of armour, and mentions of iron, all point to the Geometric Era, IMHO.
