Product description

While 'corridor houses' like the House of the Tiles at Lerna have provoked widespread discussion about the origins of social stratification in Greece, few settlements of the Early Bronze Age (ca. 3100-2000 B.C.) have been thoroughly excavated. This important study integrates the presentation and analysis of the archaeological evidence from a single settlement that flourished on Tsoungiza Hill in the Nemea Valley from the Final Neolithic until the end of the Early Helladic period. The first section details the stratigraphy, architecture, deposits, and ceramics of each of the five major periods represented. The second section contains specialist reports on all aspects of material culture including figurines and ornaments, textiles and crafts, metal analyses, chipped and ground stone, and faunal and palaeobotanical remains.

Review quote

This meticulous publication is a work of breathtaking quality in discussion and presentation. Pullen's goal to enable readers of this volume 'understand the deep history behind some of the achievements of the later EBA' is definitely fulfilled. -- Vassilis Petrakis, National Hellenic Research Foundation Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2012.08.45
