Review quote

"[I]t...sets the reader on an attractive journey to discover the multifaceted traits of everyday life at Mochlos, as reflected by the rich material culture recovered since 1989 by the Greek-American excavation directed by Jeffrey S. Soles and Costis Davaras... [C]hapter [1] deserves special attention, in consideration of the relatively few studies at the population level on Crete. Health and oral status research opens an important window indeed on gender and social distinction in LM III Mochlos, showing how both men and women, though physically different, were involved in various outdoor activities, and further demonstrating that patterns of stress also reveal the participation of adolescents in occupational activities. Carter [devotes] Chapter the stone implements... This large and valuable study is more than a straightforward presentation of material: it offers a thorough typological analysis of the ground stone tools, as well as chipped stones, followed by a discussion by context and concluded with a synthesis of the LM III consumption of obsidian at Mochlos and Crete. [I] believe that this indispensable publication...certainly adds more food for thought and opens new paths for further exploration."--Luca Girella, UniNettuno University of Rome"Bryn Mawr Classical Review" (01/01/0001)
