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.
