Author(s): CROUWEL, Joost , PRENT, Mieke , MACVEAGH THORNE, Stuart
Volume: 18 Issue: 2 Date: 2011-2012
This report on the 2009 campaign of the Geraki Project in Laconia presents the preliminary results of excavation in the north-west portion of the acropolis. Here, occupation has been attested from the Final Neolithic to the Middle Helladic period and from Protogeometric into Hellenistic times. Focus of the 2009 excavation was on the Final Neolithic and Early Helladic defensive system and on a Late Classical/Hellenistic room that had yielded the remains of greyish-blue and white plaster panels. This report also presents the outcomes of the study of the Middle Helladic sequence and associated pottery from a trial trench, dug in 1997, on the higher ground in the southern part of the acropolis.
