SUMMARY

The Middle Helladic period is defined by groundbreaking changes and the retreat of the previous period’s achievements. These are also largely true of Boeotia, yet in this area we observe a demographic increase, with successive, well-organized settlements and cemeteries. We do not observe a complex social structure, and local production remains domestic, nevertheless the area’s products are technologically adequate and continuously improve by assimilating external influences. By the end of this period, all the prerequisites for the emergence of Mycenaean society are already in place.
