Aspects Of Vernacular Architecture In Postpalatial And Early Iron Age Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donald C. Haggis Apr 1994

Aspects Of Vernacular Architecture In Postpalatial And Early Iron Age Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donald C. Haggis

Margaret S. Mook

Vernacular architecture in Postpalatial Crete exhibits a distinct diversion from the domestic architectural traditions of the Neopalatial period. In Neopalatial Crete, house designs are frequently dependent on Minoan palatial models and all house styles have a complexity that is seldom seen in the ensuing periods. Changes in vernacular architectural plans have emerged by the beginning of Late Minoan III, and include single-room dwellings and axially planned twoor three-room houses; they are found island-wide and continue and develop through the Early Iron Age. Standard features of these architectural types are defined and documented from LM III through the Late Geometric period ...


New Excavations Of A Middle Minoan Cemetery In East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Jennifer L. Tobin, B.J. Hayden Apr 1993

The Kalo Khorio Archaeological Rescue Project (KARP) is the excavation of a Middle Minoan (I-II) cemetery in the region of Kalo Khorio-Istron, at the southern edge of the Bay of Mirabella in eastern Crete. Excavation was conducted in September 1991 by members of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, and under the auspices and general directorship of Metaxia Tsipopoulou and Costis Davaras of the Greek Archaeological Service of eastern Crete.


The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson Apr 1993

The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson

Margaret S. Mook

The last phase of the Bronze Age on Crete, Late Minoan IIIC, is poorly understood both culturally and chronologically. Although much has been said about the shapes and decoration of LM IIIC pottery, the analyses are primarily stylistic and lack a precise stratigraphical basis. The stylistic development within the pottery sequence is ill defined because the remains from type sites (such as Kastri, Karphi, and Phaistos) are incompletely published, extremely meager, or stratigraphically discontinuous. On the Kastro at Kavousi, however, three distinct chronological phases of LM IIIC occupation, representing the entirety of the period, in addition to a transitional LM ...


The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook Apr 1993

The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook

Margaret S. Mook

This paper presents the results of the Kavousi-Thriphti Survey coarse-ware study. It is argued that coarse utilitarian pottery can be used for dating sites in archaeological survey, and further, that coarse pottery on the surface of any site with a domestic or storage function may represent a wider, and thus more accurate, chronological range than the associated fine wares. Detailed descriptions of 18 coarse fabric types identified in the survey region are presented. Thirteen of these fabrics were determined to be chronologically diagnostic. These fabric types, with their proposed chronological ranges and proveniences, provide sufficient data to begin analyzing the ...


The Development Of A Prehistoric Coarse Ware Pottery Typology For Survey At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donal C. Haggis Apr 1992

The Development Of A Prehistoric Coarse Ware Pottery Typology For Survey At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, Donal C. Haggis

Margaret S. Mook

Archaeological survey and excavation in the KavousiThriphti area of East Crete has provided the evidence for establishing a coarse ware fabric typology for this region. Coarse wares constitute 70-90% of the typical Aegean pottery assemblage and a chronological typology for this pottery is useful for dating surface remains, as well as deposits from excavated contexts. Diachronic changes in coarse ware fabric types have now been documented from the Early Minoan through Late Geometric/Archaic periods at Kavousi.

The Kavousi-Thriphti Survey, 1988-1989, Margaret S. Mook, Donald Haggis

Excavation was continued in four Late Minoan buildings on the north side of the Roussolakkos town site (Buildings 1 and 3-5). Building 1 was severely eroded but was fully revealed in outline, and good evidence was recovered for its history: founded in late LM lA, it replaced an MM IIB/LM lA structure in which metallurgical work in copper had taken place. Domestic activity (grinding grain and cooking) and some religious functions are among those suggested for the successive periods of later occupation (LM IB, LM II, and LM Ill). Building 3, adjacent to this, was much better preserved, up ...
