Product description

This volume of the reports on the Temple University excavations at the Minoan cemetery on Pseira, a small island off the northeast coast of Crete, covers the excavation and cleaning of the 19 tombs that still exist at the Pseira cemetery. The cemetery is remarkable for the diversity of its communal tomb types including burials in cist graves built of vertical slabs, in small tombs constructed of fieldstones, in house tombs, and in jars. The artefacts included clay vases, stone vessels, obsidian, bronze tools, jewellery, and other objects.
