Understanding Relations Between Scripts examines the writing systems of the ancient Aegean and Cyprus in the second and first millennia BC, principally Cretan 'Hieroglyphic', Linear A, Linear B, Cypro-Minoan and the Cypriot Syllabary. These scripts, of which some are deciphered and others are not, are known to be related to each other. However, the details of their relationships with each other have remained poorly understood and this will be the first volume dedicated solely to this issue. Nine papers aim to reach a better appreciation of relationships between writing systems than has been possible in previous research, through an interdisciplinary dialogue that takes account of both features of the writing systems and the contextual factors affecting the way in which writing was passed on. Each individual contribution furthers this aim by presenting the latest research on the Aegean scripts, demonstrating the great advances in our understanding of script relations that are possible through such detailed and innovative studies.


Philippa Steele is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Faculty of Classics, Cambridge. Her research has concentrated on the languages and scripts of ancient Cyprus and linguistic interrelations and writing systems in the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean. She is the author of A Linguistic History of Ancient Cyprus and editor of Syllabic Writing on Cyprus and its Context (both 2013).
