Excerpt from Explorations in the Island of Mochlos

This book is a report of the excavations at Mochlos, off the coast of Crete, which I conducted in the spring and summer of 1908. The expense of the work was borne jointly by friends of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, which obtained the concession from the Cretan authorities, and by myself. The objects which I was allowed to take out of Crete are in the Museum at Boston. The expense of this publication is borne by the School at Athens. A brief report on the work in the town of Mochlos appeared in the American Journal of Archaeology, Vol. XIII, 1909, pp. 273-303.

I wish to give hearty thanks to the many friends who have helped me in various ways. Among these I would mention especially the two Cretan Ephors, Doctor Hatzidakis and Doctor Xanthoudides, Mr. B. H. Hill, the Director of the School at Athens, Mr. Gardiner M. Lane, the President of the Trustees of the Museum, Sir Arthur Evans, Miss Edith H. Hall, and the Committee on Publications of the School at Athens, Professor G. H. Chase, Professor J. R. Wheeler, and Professor H. N. Fowler. Miss Hall has read the manuscript and has offered many valuable suggestions. The members of the Committee have read both manuscript and proof and have aided me greatly by their advice and counsel.
