Together with the organising committee of the Scapecon 2020 conference, Tijdschrift voor Mediterrane Archeologie published a supplement, titled:

Breaking Boundaries: connecting the Aegean Bronze Age. Proceedings of the 3rd Scapecon conference

The relationship between people, their material culture, and environment is utmost dynamic. It is continuously altered, negotiated, and manipulated, depending on the context and the motives of the involved parties. This supplement will focus on these interactions and relations within the timeframe of the Aegean Bronze Age. In this volume, various sources will be exploited (e.g. pottery, burials, glyptography, and paintings) to investigate how they shaped the connections between people, objects, and the landscape in which they dwell.
