Prehistoric Laconia: A note on the location of the site of Souroukla
R. Hope Simpson The Annual of the British School at Athens 104 (2009) [February 2010]: 321-324.
In 1921, Carl Blegen found Mycenaean and other ancient sherds at a site then named Souroukla, near Skala in Laconia. William Coulson and others have mistakenly assumed that Souroukla is to be identified as Ayios Stephanos, the important site surveyed by the author in 1956 and later excavated by the British School under Lord William Taylour. The author here reveals that the true identity of Souroukla is the site of Skala: Ayios Nikolaos.
