A guide for field archaeologists and for those with a significant interest in ceramics and design, to pottery from the site of Knossos dating from the 8th century BC to the 5th century AD. Each of the four chapters addresses a different period (Subminoan to Late Orientalising, Late Archaic and Classical, Hellenistic and Roman), outlining both finewares and coarsewares, with emphasis on local wares and some imports. The authors cover open and closed vessels, storage, eating and drinking vessels, decoration, fabric and techniques, including details on particular examples and their provenance.
