Whereas formerly elites struggled for ascendancy within their community and throughout their immediate region, now they began to compete in areas more widespread: with other elites in their larger region, among nascent polities as conﬂict arose along territorial boundaries, and presumably also in the wider arena of Aegean relations.

At Malthi we may have the instance of a village where one lineage group was ascendant and where its headman and his family lived in the main house, which was also a place of socio-political gathering. The nearby evidence of a suite of rooms for probable craft activities may indicate the desire of the headman to have some immediate control over important craft production (Valmin 1938: 102–5, 368–9). Whether or not we would ﬁnd the same plan and organisation elsewhere depends upon the extent to which other places had achieved the same level and kind of socio-political integration as at Malthi.
Despite this interpretation it is hard to think that the ﬁlling of walls would have had no structural purpose; this is especially so in the laid rubble ﬁll in some of the temples. Diﬀerences of interpretation notwithstanding, the structural similarities between this old 33 Anatolian system and that employed in the latest phases of the Mycenaean palaces are surely owed to some exchange of technology, probably accomplished through the exchange of craftspersons (Zaccagnini 1983).
