Chapter Summary

This chapter mainly focuses on new and important evidence from the Post-Palatial Lower Town north of the Citadel Hill of Tiryns but will also review evidence from the Palatial period of the late thirteenth century BCE, without which Post-Palatial household activities in Tiryns cannot be understood. The chapter demonstrates that architecture and feasting are directly linked in the Mycenaean Palatial period and constitute social space. The Mycenaean Palatial period until 1200 BCE owes its name to the existence of several palatial centers on the Greek mainland: Mycenae, Tiryns, and Pylos on the Peloponnese. Taking together the evidence from the palace of Pylos and the Lower Citadel and Lower City of Tiryns, one may conclude that every participant of a Mycenaean feasting community could easily recognize the status the participants had or would have liked to have had.

Keywords: Citadel hill of Tiryns; Mycenaean Palatial period; post-Palatial household activities
