Dear all,  

According to the discussion of issue 518 in the 50th sig meeting, the
question whether settlements are interpreted as instances of E4 Period
or E7 Activity in the CRM, depends on the granularity with which the
information is presented in each case.  

With that in mind, Martin has created two variants of one and the same
example (Lerna IV and Lerna V settlements) to demonstrate the case in
point.  

The vote is to decide on whether to accept each of the two examples
following Martin's reformulation [see below]. 

The possible votes are: 

  * Yes = accept/agree 

  * No = do not accept/agree 

  * Other = With other you can either introduce a caveat (e.g.: 'Yes,
but there is a typo on word x, fix it.') or you can write VETO, if you
wish to stop the proposal, in which case you should also write a
justification and reformulate the issue (e.g.: 'VETO, this change is  
unacceptable because it violates the following principle...')  

Please send your e-votes by the 18th of July. 

All the best, 

Eleni 

SETTLEMENTS AS INSTANCES OF E7 ACTIVITY

The settlement activity of the population of Lerna IV and Lerna V (E7) 

[The expression "a physical expression of one cultural group" in the
following citation of (Banks, 2013) justifies regarding this settlement
activity as one instance of E7 Activity, with a distinct identity and
unity. In contrast, the mentioned periods such as EH II, EH III , etc.
are of more general nature and hence examples of E4 Period only. The
citation is:  

    "While Caskey notes a major cultural break between the EH II and EH
III remains at Lerna, he argues for a high level of continuity in the
following periods, until the site was transformed into a cemetery during
LH I. The domestic architecture dating from EH III to LH I (Lerna IV-V,
roughly from 2200-1500 B.C.) is therefore considered together as a
physical expression of one cultural group, naturally acknowledging and
critically examining significant changes over the course of this period.
Caskey's reports are supplemented by the works of Jeremy Rutter and
Carol Zerner, which are particularly important for the EH III and early
MH remains respectively.] (Banks, 2013) 

SETTLEMENTS AS INSTANCES OF E4 PERIOD

The settlement activity of the population of Lerna IV and Lerna V (E7) 

[Whereas periods such as EH II, EH III mentioned in the following
citation of (Banks, 2013), etc. are typical examples of archaeological
periods (E4 Period), the expression "a physical expression of one
cultural group"  justifies regarding this particular settlement activity
more specifically as one instance of E7 Activity, with a distinct
identity and unity. The citation is:  

     "While Caskey notes a major cultural break between the EH II and EH
III remains at Lerna, he argues for a high level of continuity in the
following periods, until the site was transformed into a cemetery during
LH I. The domestic architecture dating from EH III to LH I (Lerna IV-V,
roughly from 2200-1500 B.C.) is therefore considered together as a
physical expression of one cultural group, naturally acknowledging and
critically examining significant changes over the course of this period.
Caskey's reports are supplemented by the works of Jeremy Rutter and
Carol Zerner, which are particularly important for the EH III and early
MH remains respectively.] (Banks, 2013)
