Description

This volume is the second of two that represent the final publication of Sector I of the Prepalatial to Postpalatial Minoan urban settlement and palace of Petras, Siteia, located in eastern Crete. It presents in detail the Late Bronze Age pottery recovered during the excavations conducted there from 1985 to 2000. The Neopalatial and Late Minoan II to III pottery from Houses I.1 and I.2 is analyzed and discussed with a focus on the main Neopalatial period of the Petras settlement and its Postpalatial reoccupation. The petrographic analysis of a select group of pottery from House I.1 is also detailed, allowing for a discussion of patterns in production and consumption over time.
