Mochlos IIA: Period IV, the Mycenaean Settlement and Cemetery : the Sites
Jeffrey S. Soles
INSTAP Academic Press, 2008 - Architecture - 265 pages
The results of excavations carried out at two Late Minoan III sites at Mochlos in eastern Crete are presented. The stratigraphy and architecture of a total of 31 tombs and 11 houses are discussed together with a complete list of artefacts, ecofacts, and skeletal remains from each context. The cemetery remains mirror the settlement remains, and the conclusions discuss how the two sites reflect each other. Rarely in Crete are a settlement and its cemetery both preserved, and it is extremely fortunate to be able to excavate both.
