Between the sixteenth and eleventh centuries B.C., Continental Greece hosted the Mycenaean area and kept a certain homogeneity in the political and cultural field. With the surge of destruction that affected the Mycenaean world of the thirteenth century BC onwards, occurred the gradual decline of this social, political and cultural system. If, on the one hand, the phenomenon corrupts the structures of the ancient tradition, on the other, it establishes the principle of the Iron Age. It is on the result of this bilateral process that this dissertation focuses, as having as source the Attic pottery produced between 1100 and 700 BC, it seeks to understand and delineate this process. Within the concept of cultural change presented here, it is believed that there is a maintenance, in greater or lesser extent, of certain socio-cultural canons, as well as its opposite: modifications and innovations. The ceramic takes place at this juncture due to its characteristic to retain a part of the evaluative, aesthetic and cultural impressions of society that produced it. This proposal is limited to ceramic pots analysis produced in Attica during the late Mycenaean period (Submycenaean), Protogeometric and Geometric, in order to highlight the thread of tradition between the ceramic styles of the respective periods, and also identify where innovations are.
