Full description for Knossos Pottery Handbook
Deals comprehensively with the pottery of Knossos from the beginning of the Iron Age until Late Roman times. Finds from a century of excavation at Knossos are treated in sufficient depth so as to be useful not only to students seeking a general background but also to research scholars engaged in Cretan field archaeology and museum work. For those concerned with recovering the record of ancient Greek and Roman Crete, this volume is designed to help quick diagnosis of pottery finds. For the connoisseur of ceramic art, attention is also drawn to the lively and creative imagination of Knossian potters, preserving from the Minoan past and surfacing especially in Early Greek and Hellenistic times.
