Review: An impressive publication from INSTAP Academic Press...Gives us much to look forward to.' (Saro Wallace Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2007-03-00)

Like the rest of the book, [3 sections on pottery] will prove their value for ongoing archaeological investigations in the Mirabello region and set an example for projects elsewhere.' (Mieke Prent, VU University, Netherlands American Journal Of Archaeology, vol 111.3, July 2007)

He has produced a handsome volume that makes a major contribution to our understanding of settlement history on Crete from the Neolithic until Roman times.[...]This book then augurs well for the Kavousi series as a whole. It is handsomely produced,clearly set out and thoroughly cross-referenced.There are few if any mistakes, or questionably statements. It is in general easy to use and learn from.[...]..this is a fine book, handsomely turned out and reasonably priced, which makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of Cretan history and archaeology. If you have an interest in these fields, buy it.' (James Whitley The Classical Bulletin 82.2, 2006)

This is in all respects an exemplary publication, laying out in a very lucid way both the material and the case for the interpretation offered. It is immaculately presented with excellent maps and profile drawings of the pottery...' (Robin Osborne Journal of Hellenic Studies, 2007)

The volume presents a comprehensive interpretation of the Kavousi region, and its data and results will augment considerably the publication of the two excavated Kavousi sites, whose appearance is eagerly awaited.' (Jane Francis Phoenix, Fall-Winter 2007)
