Forming communities: e Eighth Century bc book
At the end of Chapter 3 I left the communities of Dark Age Greece showing more signs of internal structure and establishing more systematic contact with eastern communities; I left the Phoenicians, a new colony established at Kition and probably another at Carthage, showing, as they had not a century earlier, an interest in tapping the resources of parts west, as well as parts east. e story of eighth-century bc Greece is a story of a world rapidly changing, and changing in part under the inuence of increasingly dense contacts with the world outside. In the rst three sections of this chapter I will look in turn at the evidence from settlements, cemeteries, and sanctuaries, before turning to Greek contact with the non-Greek world and to artistic developments.
