Continuing the documentation of the excavation at the Minoan and Greek seaside town of Kommos in Crete, Volume III of this series focuses on the Minoan and imported pottery from the Late Bronze Age. Not only does this work offer the most thorough presentation of stratified Late Minoan pottery of any site on Crete, it also exhibits the widest range of imported pottery of any excavated site in the Aegean. Imported from other regions of Crete, the Aegean islands, the Greek Mainland, Anatolia, Cyprus, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, and Sardinia, this pottery reveals new international trade connections around the Mediterranean during the seventeenth through the thirteenth centuries B.C. The volume begins with a presentation of the stratified ceramic deposits, then discusses the Late Minoan stylistic sequence at Kommos, comparing it to that at Knossos and other centers. Finally the book documents the imported Late Bronze pottery at the site and discusses Eastern Mediterranean trade during the period in light of this new evidence.
