From the Preface

Once upon a time – in early 2005 – when the Minoan Seminar was still under the auspices of the Danish Institute at Athens, Tom Brogan mentioned that it might be a good idea to have a workshop on LM IB pottery focusing on the disagreement and unsolved problems connected with recent excavations in East Crete. We talked about it a couple of times without doing much, but then during the summer of 2006 we started to ask around and found that the time was ripe for such a workshop. We were particularly fortunate because the timing of the 10th Cretological Congress in Khania allowed us to discuss the matter with our colleagues who were not resident in Greece. After many positive reactions we started to plan. Because it had to be a low-budget workshop, we chose late June 2007 when most excavators with knowledge of LM IB pottery would be in Greece and accommodations in Athens would not be so difficult to arrange.

With the experience from the LM III pottery workshop held at the Danish Institute in 1994, we decided to invite excavators with unpublished, stratified LM IB deposits as speakers. Each speaker would also have a respondent who was an excavator with unpublished LM IB material so that they could use the experience and knowledge from their own excavations in preparing their responses. In the few cases where we could not find excavators with LM IB material as respondents, we invited scholars who were experienced in the topic. As with the LM III pottery workshop, there were no strict time limits for any of the presentations. For three days, from the 27th to the 29th of June 2007, 30 scholars presented their material and responded to questions from a wider audience in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, and there was plenty of discussion after each of the presentations.
