    DescriptionExcavations carried out at two Late Minoan III sites at Mochlos in eastern Crete yielded a pottery assemblage from 31 tombs and 11 houses, which are cataloged, discussed, and illustrated together with petrographic analyses. The cemetery remains mirror the settlement remains, and the conclusions discuss how the two sites reflect each other. Rarely in Crete are a settlement and its cemetery both preserved, and it is extremely fortunate to be able to document both in a series of scientific excavation reports (Mochlos IIA-IIC). Contents: Introduction; 1. Petrographic Analysis of the Late Minoan III Ceramics; 2. The Late Minoan II-III Pottery; 3. Conclusions: The Decoration, Character, and Relative Chronology of the Late Minoan II-III Pottery; App. A. Petrographic Descriptions; App. B. Earlier Minoan and Later Orientalizing Pottery from Late Minoan III Contexts; Bibliography; Conc. A; Conc. B; Index; Tables; Figures; Plates.

    Review quote
    This volume constitutes a remarkably interesting and indispensable source of information for those concerned with the modes of production, distribution and mainly consumption of ceramics...in LM II-IIIB Crete and especially in the increasingly less obscure and wild eastern Cretan region. It also offers an exemplary methodology for studying stratigraphically, chronologically and contextually well-defined assemblages of pottery.'--Charlotte Langohr, Universite Catholique de Louvain"Bryn Mawr Classical Review" (01/01/0001)
