Hey, anybody know any good books about the Submycenaean or Protogeometric period? I have found a couple, but there isn't a lot. Any ideas?

Boy that's tough, as there was so much chaos at the time; there is a lot about the cryptic pottery, and the Lefkandi tombs you are already aware of.. If you want armour, you might try Born's Frühgriechische Bronzehelme; I suspect that some the pieces of kegelhelms found at Olympia might actually be older than they are currently dated, and possibly even from the Trojan War. Also Early Cretan Armourers(?) is a great book though the material discussed is dated later. Homerische Helme is excellent --rounding up the usual suspects and more.

For military things there is Brouwer's Henchmen of Ares. It has a bibliograpical essay in the back to help people find relevant works written for academics.

Thanks for those suggestions guys. For my part I will recommend "From Pasture to Polis", pretty good photos and great essays, just a bit later than I was hoping. There is some OK stuff online too, of course, but this period seems to be less intriguing to people.

Just bought Henchmen of Ares. Looks good, thanks Sean. Amateurs and reenactors are a nice balance for academia --fresh eyes and thoughts, and we know what errors have crept into academic literature in the past ;) --Dan?
