dc.description.abstractThis thesis seeks to examine the characteristics, theoretical origins, and utility of a political network in south-central Crete known as a “Great Minoan Triangle.” The theory, first published in 1985, concerns the political and economic relationships between the three largest known sites in the region: Phaistos, Agia Triada, and Kommos. The Triangle system proposes a mutually beneficial relationship between the three sites throughout the entire Minoan period, and perhaps even earlier. However, definitive attributes of the Triangle are scarce, which complicates its application to an understanding of the Early and Middle Minoan periods. This thesis examines the Triangle through the consideration of contemporary theoretical approaches to systems modeling during the 1960s–1980s, to evaluate the scholarly framework out of which the system emerged. A comprehensive analysis of the Triangle and its nuances allows for the rethinking of the theory as a whole, through the lens of recent studies in spatial technologies.
