This is the fourth and final volume of the definitive publication, by the world's major Mycenaean epigraphists, of the Linear B tablets found by Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos in Crete. It includes all the fragments discarded by Evans and subsequently recovered from the Museum storerooms and elsewhere, and represents the results of more than thirty years' work on reconstituting the documents. Each tablet or fragment is given as a photograph, a drawing and in transcription. The notes are purely textual. In addition to fragments 8000-9947 this volume contains an index to all four volumes.
