This monograph presents a full discussion of the current research in late-Bronze Age III pottery in Crete. The contributors of the 12 essays are archaeologists presently studying late-Minoan (LM) III pottery, preferably from stratified excavations in the significant LM settlements and tombs of Crete, as well as scholars who have already published their findings. The book presents material from important excavations in Crete. Also included is a useful, ten-page chart organising the names, with line drawings of the 78 prevailing vase types of the period. Additional essays provide background for the appreciation of previously published articles and monographs on LM III pottery by highlighting past and current controversies, most confined to the development of Minoan pottery. The late-Bronze Age III in Crete is a relatively new area of research; a definition of the current situation was deemed necessary as a starting point to the future exchange of ideas and experiences.
