Vrysinas II - The Pottery of the 1972-1973 excavation
This volume is the second in the series of published archaeological material from the Vrysinas Peak Sanctuary, covering the pottery from the 1972-73 excavation. Apart from the basic presentation of the pottery via illustrations, photographs and descriptions, and of its chronological and typological context, the main themes developed are the analysis of human activity at the site as evidenced by the pottery (e.g. large-scale communal meals), the offerings of material and immaterial goods (the ritual), and the visitors' origins.

This volume is the second in the series of published archaeological material from the Vrysinas Peak Sanctuary, covering the pottery from the 1972-73 excavation. Apart from the basic presentation of the pottery via illustrations, photographs and descriptions, and of its chronological and typological context, the main themes developed are the analysis of human activity at the site as evidenced by the pottery (e.g. large-scale communal meals), the offerings of material and immaterial goods (the ritual), and the visitors' origins. Light is also shed on the conception of the natural world and social space by the applied decoration of the vases with human and animal figurines and elements of the landscape such as rocks and trees.

Overall, an image is formed of a gathering-place of perioikoi, residents of nearby villages and townships, who converged on the hill, organised according to kin-group, age or place of origin...
