Description

This volume, the last planned by Mervyn Popham, describes the settlement of Xeropolis at Lefkandi during the LH IIIC period. Following excavation between 1964 and 1969, a series of interim reports and articles played a pivotal role in revealing the history of this part of the Aegean, as well as supplying much of the early framework for the present division of LH IIIC ceramics. "Lefkandi IV" now presents a detailed account of the site's three main phases of occupation and many important finds. In this title, an initial chapter sets out the stratigraphical history of LH IIIC Xeropolis as documented in the Main Excavation Area and Trials (Don Evely and Hugh Sackett). This is followed by specialist reports on the pottery (Mervyn Popham, Elizabeth Schofield and Susan Sherratt), the pictorial pottery (Joost Crouwel), the terracotta figurines (Elizabeth French) and the small finds (Don Evely). Finally a summary of the most important observations emerging from the volume is presented by Susan Sherratt. There is a CD-ROM that makes available reports on the intramural burials (Jonathan Musgrave) and shells (David Reese), as well as statistical tables for chosen ceramic contexts and concordances. The entire volume is copiously illustrated with plans, line drawings and photographs.
