Mochlos IIC: Period IV. The Mycenaean Settlement and Cemetery: The Human Remains and Other Finds
by Jeffrey S. Soles, Joanna Bending, Thomas M. Brogan, Kelly Caldwell, Tristan Carter, Katerina Kopaka, Dimitra Mylona, Ann Nicgorski, Maria Ntinou, David Reese, George Rethemiotakis, R. Angus K. Smith, Mary Ellen Soles, Sevi Triantaphyllou, and Polly Westlake edited by Jeffrey S. Soles and Costis Davaras

Excavations carried out at the Late Minoan III settlement and cemetery at Mochlos in eastern Crete yielded domestic artifacts, human remains, grave goods, and ecofactual material from 31 tombs and 11 houses. These objects are cataloged, discussed, and illustrated. Radiocarbon dates for the site are also presented. The cemetery remains mirror the settlement remains, and the conclusions discuss how the two sites reflect each other. Rarely in Crete are a settlement and its cemetery both preserved, and it is extremely fortunate to be able to document both in a series of scientific excavation reports (Mochlos IIA–IIC). Contents.
