Title: Tanagras: a mystery unveiled? a material context study of terracotta figurines in late Classical, early Hellenistic Greece
Author: Verhagen, Kya

Keywords: Tanagras, material context study, women, social identity
Abstract: In this thesis a social-cultural interpretation is given of Tanagras by looking at their material context in graves and houses from Olynthus, in graves from Tanagra and sites in Macedonia and at the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore in Corinth. A link thus is made with the social identity of women and the role Tanagras played in substantiating this identity in daily life.
