The early Iron Age cemetery at Torone

by John K. Papadopoulos | 30 September 2005
Hardback
Category: Archaeology
Synopsis
This volume publishes the excavation and analysis of the Early Iron Age cemetery at Torone in Chalkidike, in the north Aegean, Greece. Spanning the period between the twelfth or eleventh century down to ca. 850 BC, the cemetery represents one of the few burial grounds of the period in Greece to have been excavated virtually in its entirety (yielding 134 tombs, of which 118 were cremations and 16 inhumations). In addition to full analyses of the material from individual tombs (pottery, objects of metal, terracotta, stone, bone, glass compound, amber), as well as the burial customs and funerary rites, a series of specialist reports present the physical anthropology of the deceased, as well as the retrieved faunal and floral remains. There is also a petrographic and chemical analysis of the pottery, one of the most comprehensive of its type in Greece. In addition to presenting the archaeological data from the cemetery, this volume seeks to (re)construct a picture of a society in a formative era and for a part of the Greek world that until very recently was archaeologically neglected. Contributors to this volume include Jonathan H. Musgrave (University of Bristol), the late Sandor Bökönyi and Ferenc Gyulai (Hungarian Academy of Sciences), Deborah Ruscillo (Washington University, St. Louis), Kristina Kelertas (UCLA), Richard E. Jones (University of Glasgow), and Ian K. Whitbread (University of Leicester).
