520 2  "Generations of scholars have grappled with the origins of
       'palace' society on Minoan Crete, seeking to explain when 
       and how life on the island altered monumentally. Emily 
       Anderson turns light on the moment just before the palaces,
       recognizing it as a remarkably vibrant phase of socio-
       cultural innovation. Exploring the role of craftspersons, 
       travelers and powerful objects, she argues that social 
       change resulted from creative work that forged connections
       at new scales and in novel ways. This study focuses on an 
       extraordinary corpus of sealstones which have been 
       excavated across Crete. Fashioned of imported ivory and 
       engraved with images of dashing lions, these distinctive 
       objects linked the identities of their distant owners. 
       Anderson argues that it was the repeated but pioneering 
       actions of such diverse figures, people and objects alike,
       that dramatically changed the shape of social life in the 
       Aegean at the turn of the second millennium BCE"--
