Summary
This volume, the first of two dealing with the Early Iron Age deposits from the Athenian Agora, publishes all the tombs from the end of the Bronze Age through the transition from the Middle Geometric to Late Geometric period. An introduction deals with the layout of the four cemeteries of the period, the topographical ramifications, periodization, and a synthesis of Athens in the Early Iron Age. Individual chapters offer a complete catalogue of all the tombs and their contents, an analysis of the human remains from the inhumations and cremations and of the fauna found in graves, and a full analysis of the burial customs and funerary rites. The pottery and other small finds deposited in tombs are covered in two chapters. An anticipated second volume will deal with the material from all the non-funerary contexts
