Some Cases of Possible Multiethnic Societies in the Prehistory of the Near East: A Comparison
These examples are dealt with as emblematic cases of different models of society, types of interaction with alien groups, levels of integration, and development dynamics. By analyzing and comparing these examples, the paper aims to show how interethnic contact impacted differently on different societies according to their types, the reasons and purposes of the interaction, and the degree of integration achieved. Intercultural contacts and community interactions not only are well-attested in archaeology, but also have often been the main focus of interest by scholars. One of the main reasons why these phenomena have acquired such importance in archaeological research is that the dynamics of cultural transmission have indeed been one of the main drivers of processes of change 1. Different schools of anthropology have variously explained cultural contacts by emphasizing either population movements or interaction spheres and hybridization, technological transfer, or exchange and trade. The world-system model has been applied to early societies, being based on the theoretical assumption that unequal and unbalanced trade relations between different ethnic groups necessarily result in the acquisition of the dominant group model by all of the communities involved in the relationship.
