The South House, located immediately south of the Palace of Knossos was first excavated by Arthur Evans in 1908, with subsequent work carried out in 1924, but was never published. This volume pieces together evidence from the finds from the excavation housed in the Stratigraphical Museum, as well as the Daybooks of Duncan Mackenzie, to form an overview of the excavation and the history of the building. Contributions from a number of specialists assess the architecture of the South House and especially the entrance system (Jan Driessen) , the fresco fragments (P A Mountjoy) , the fragments of Early, Middle and Late Minoan pottery (C Knappett, P A Mountjoy) , pithoi and storage (K S Chrsitakis) , silver vessels (P A Mountjoy) , stone, bone, ivory, bronze and clay finds (R D G Evely) , loomweights (B Burke) and seals
