Mochlos IIA


The results of excavations carried out at two Late Minoan III sites at Mochlos in eastern Crete are presented. The stratigraphy and architecture of a total of 31 tombs and 11 houses are discussed together with a complete list of artefacts, ecofacts, and skeletal remains from each context. 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 excavate both.

Reviews & Quotes

"The high quality of publication is...reflected in the clear line drawings, the careful reconstructions, the detailed tables, the excavation photographs and in particular the tomb drawings annotated with findspots [...] One can only look forward to the publication of the two remaining Mochlos II volumes.'"
Yannis Galanakis, University of Oxford
