Pseira I


Pseira, a tiny islet near the coast of eastern Crete, has been
called a priceless jewel in Crete's archaeological crown. In 1906
and 1907, the American archaeologist Richard Seager unearthed the
extensive remains of a Bronze Age village on Pseira. Little was
known about this site until a joint Greek-American project
directed by Philip P. Betancourt and Costis Davaras returned to
the island in 1985. This is the first volume in a series of final
publications on the joint American-Greek archaeological
excavations at Pseira in northeast Crete. The site is a seaport
dating from the end of the Final Neolithic until the Late Minoan
period. This volume presents a series of houses whose main period
of occupation is Late Minoan IB. The architecture is constructed
of stone and remarkably well preserved. The text includes
detailed catalog entries, profile drawings, and stone-by-stone
architectural plans.
