An Archaeological Survey of the Gournia Landscape. A Regional History of the Mirabello Bay, Crete, in Antiquity

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 2012

An Archaeological Survey of the Gournia Landscape. A Regional History of the Mirabello Bay, Crete, in Antiquity This project was conceived in 1991 by L.V. Watrous. At that time, the Mirabello Bay area had been the focus of excavation at various sites - e.g., Vasiliki, Mochlos, Kavousi, and Pseira - for a number of years.

Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions volume 1: Analysis

Oxford/New York 2012

Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions volume 1: Analysis This volume offers the first comprehensive examination of an ancient writing system from Cyprus and Syria known as Cypro-Minoan. After Linear B was deciphered by Michael Ventris in 1952, other un-deciphered scripts of the second millennium B.C. from the Aegean world (Linear A) and the Eastern Mediterranean (Cypro-Minoan) became the focus of those trying to crack this ancient and historical code. Despite several attempts for both syllabaries, this prospect has remained unrealized.

It was my obligation to deal with archaeological matters of that site, such as the arrangement of the agora. Thus, when, in 1983, at the request of the Archaeological Society in Athens, I undertook the continuation of the excavation of Thermos, which had been con­ducted by Rhomaios until 1932, I began with the agora.
