AEGIS is an archaeological research group based at the Université Catholique de Louvain. It forms part of the Center for the Study of Ancient Worlds (CEMA), itself part of INCAL – the Institute of Civilizations, Arts and Letters.

Originally founded in 1999 as TOP-Topography of Power on Minoan Crete, our research interests have gradually expanded to include Aegean archaeology in general and Cretan protohistory in particular. Our studies aim especially to understand Minoan political and social structures by using a series of interdisciplinary approaches.
