Sample text

On the mainland the Early Helladic Age began after a marked break in continuity. This break was on some sites almost complete, on others there is a short time span with strongly marked Cycladic correspondences. It is impossible, for the time being, to give a satisfactory historical interpretation to these facts. The strongest characteristic of the Early Bronze Age in Greece is a general and all-pervasive urbanization of life. Agriculture lost its predominant importance. The population gathered in big cities and lived by handicraft and trade.

It belonged to the same famliy as the autochthonous languages of Asia Minor. This language family, neither Indo-European nor Semitic, had originally spread to the Aegean and the south of the Balkan peninsula. The suffix -nth- is but the western variant of the suffix -nd- found in Asia Minor. The Pre-Greek stratum of the Aegean area was, as Kretschmer thought, one, non-lndo-European, and closely related to the autochthonous languages of Asia Minor. Fick provided further evidence for this view. 61 Kretschmer's teaching on the Pre-Greek substratum in the Aegean is based chiefly on the study of geographical names of non-Greek origin.

59 Pauly also believed that the Pre­ Greek language represented by these toponyms was closely related to the autochthonous languages of Asia Minor and with the older linguistic stratum of ltaly as known from the Etruscan monuments. On this basis, in addition to fundamental research of his own, Kretschmer constructed his doctrine which was to influence basi­ cally all teaching and research for many decades to come. 60 According to Kretschmer, the Pre-Greek language was one and showed no essential variety.
