Overview

Kavousi I is the initial volume of the Kavousi Excavation Series, which presents the final report of the Kavousi Project, a program of archaeological investigation near the modern village of Kavousi in eastern Crete. Subsequent volumes will publish the results of the 1987-1992 excavations at the Vronda and Kastro sites in the Siteia Mountains overlooking Kavousi and of the cleaning and new study of the excavations of Harriet Boyd in 1900 and 1901. This volume, Kavousi I: The Archaeological Survey of the Kavousi Region , provides a comprehensive look at the topography of the area, its natural resources, and the way in which the local people interacted with them over time, as shown in the changing pattern of settlement. It sets the stage for the report on the excavations and provides an introduction to the local soils and to the pottery classification used by the excavators.

Editorial Reviews

Bryn Mawr Classical Review - Saro Wallace
An impressive publication from INSTAP Academic Press...Gives us much to look forward to.'
American Journal Of Archaeology - Mieke Prent
Like the rest of the book, [3 sections on pottery] will prove their value for ongoing archaeological investigations in the Mirabello region and set an example for projects elsewhere.'
The Classical Bulletin 82.2 - James Whitley
He has produced a handsome volume that makes a major contribution to our understanding of settlement history on Crete from the Neolithic until Roman times.[...]This book then augurs well for the Kavousi series as a whole. It is handsomely produced,clearly set out and thoroughly cross-referenced.There are few if any mistakes, or questionably statements. It is in general easy to use and learn from.[...]..this is a fine book, handsomely turned out and reasonably priced, which makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of Cretan history and archaeology. If you have an interest in these fields, buy it.'
Journal of Hellenic Studies - Robin Osborne
This is in all respects an exemplary publication, laying out in a very lucid way both the material and the case for the interpretation offered. It is immaculately presented with excellent maps and profile drawings of the pottery...'
Phoenix - Jane Francis
The volume presents a comprehensive interpretation of the Kavousi region, and its data and results will augment considerably the publication of the two excavated Kavousi sites, whose appearance is eagerly awaited.'
