To celebrate thirty years of excavation, the director of the University of Toronto excavations at Kommos presents a personal view of the site and the archaeological investigations that have transformed our understanding of what daily life for more humble members of the Bronze Age population may have been like. At the same time, the site was a busy port with connections to the Near East that continued into historic periods and some rich finds and elaborate buildings reflect the importance of foreign trade for the Cretan economy.
