This volume is written by a small international team of archaeologists with extensive and first-hand knowledge of Knossian ceramics, whose work over the years, has thoroughly questioned and modified previous dating of important ceramic assemblages and traditional definitions of ceramic phases. The chapters present not only new updates of their previous works, but also a thorough re-examination of the stratigraphic and stylistic evidence currently available, and include previously unpublished material. In addition to 100+ black&white illustrations, there is a CD with colour images of selected Knossian ceramics. It will be an indispensable work of reference for archaeologicsts working in the prehistoric Aegean as well as other Mediterranean and European regions.
