Buildings are the largest and most tangible archaeological remains of ancient civilizations. In fact "civilization", from the Latin civitates, means “life in cities”. In this part the styles, technology and building materials of ancient civilizations from Mycenae to Crete and Santorin will be covered, including a discussion of the interaction of these Sites as reflected in their buildings; their archeological remains and individual construction.
