From the introduction

Within the very rich flora of Greece, the Aegean and especially Crete there are many scented plants suitable for the making of aromatics, perfumes, scented oils and unguents. The evidence for the Aegean Bronze Age is essentially of three kinds, botanical, epigraphic (Linear B) and archaeological, all interrelated. Building on a considerable amount of previous scholarship we shall discuss as examples three kinds of perfumes. But first it is necessary to make an important chronological and cultural point and also to summarize the manufacturing processes.
