Volume 2: The Final Report

Edited by Ernestine S. Elster
Edited by Colin Renfrew

Recipient of the Jo Anne Stolaroff Cotsen Prize

Volume 2 presents the concluding research on Sitagroi, a prehistoric settlement mound in northeastern Greece, excavated between 1968 and 1970. This volume offers a detailed report on the plant remains along with a full treatment of craft and technology: artifacts of adornment; tools of bone and flaked stone; artifacts and tools of bone and ground and polished stone (and petrology); tools of the spinner, weaver and mat maker; pottery technology; metallurgy; and special clay finds such as seals, miniatures, and utensils. This rich presentation offers unparalleled insights into the life of the prehistoric inhabitants of the area. Sitagroi now becomes one of the most comprehensively published sites from prehistoric Europe and will be indispensable for all those concerned with European prehistory.


Ernestine S. Elster of the UCLA Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, was a member of the excavation team at Sitagroi.

Colin Renfrew of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University was co-director of the Sitagroi excavations.
