Late Bronze Age pottery found at Kommos
*Pottery is important in archaeology as a chronological indicator because pottery shape and decoration changes over time and place.
Most of the pottery described in this list, by L. Vance Watrous from Kommos volume III, comes from the settlement situated on the hilltop and slope (Central Hillside) after a destructive earthquake near the transition between Middle Minoan III and Late Minoan IA (1700 – 1500 BC ). The list includes pottery from other pottery producing areas on Crete and states located off Crete such as mainland Greece, Syria-Palestine, Egypt, Canaan and Italy. We intend to eventually add more detail, such as pottery profiles and other pottery typological information from all Kommos periods of occupation, over time.MS Excel (.xlsx) format.
