From the introduction

The Late Bronze Age (LBA) settlement of the “Serraglio”, situated in the centre of the modern town of Kos, had a prominent role in the cultural interface which included the main islands of the Dodecanese and the SW coast of Anatolia. The related cemeteries of Eleona and Langada were located only a short distance from the settlement. They were founded in Late Helladic (LH) IIB and LH IIIA2 respectively and were used intensively until a rather advanced phase of LH IIIC. In the successive Early Iron Age (EIA), Kos continued to play a major role in the SE Aegean. From a mature stage of the Protogeometric period, the area of the “Serraglio”, which had previously been the site of the Mycenaean settlement, was turned into a cemetery.
