Kavousi IIC: The Late Minoan IIIC Settlement at Vronda



This book is the third volume in the final report of the cleaning and excavations at the Late Minoan IIIC settlement of Vronda—located near Kavousi in eastern Crete—that were conducted between 1983 and 1992. The reports on the houses of the settlement in their context, with focused analyses of specific buildings, can be found in two previous volumes: Kavousi IIA (Day, Klein, and Turner 2009) and Kavousi IIB (Day and Glowacki 2012). Detailed analyses of the architecture, pottery, other finds (including figurines and stone tools), and botanical and faunal remains are presented in this third volume, along with a complete history of the site and an attempt to reconstruct the social, political, and religious organization of the settlement.

"“The work exhibits the superb quality that characterizes the publications of INSTAP Academic Press… this volume, along with the Vronda series in general, represents an authoritative and comprehensive study of the archaeology of the site. It is a reference work for LM IIIC Crete and sets a model for final publications of Aegean settlement sites.”"
