The Minoan town at Gournia flourished from the Early Bronze Age until its destruction at the end of the Late Minoan IB period. It was later resettled before being abandoned again in LM IIIB. The town was substantial, with houses arranged in irregular blocks. This book presents the pottery found during Gournia's excavation in 1901, 1903 and 1904. This collection, now in The University Museum, University of Pennsylvania, is the largest and most important group of Minoan objects from a single site outside of Europe.
