Abstract
The new excavations have also confirmed the surprising ethnic mix of material culture at Pyla: a Minoan amphoroid krater together with Cypriote pithoi and Canaanite jars in Sector 4, a Cypriot spindle bottle together with imported deep bowl and mug rhyton from the central plateau Trench 3.1, or a Canaanite jar, Mycenaean stirrup jar, Cypriot storage jar from the northwest trench , etc. To these may be added the Sardinian, Mycenaean and Hittite vases encountered in previous seasons. In view of the brevity of occupation and localization of the site, many of these objects may be regarded as resulting from intensive trade. The discovery of such mixed assemblages in all parts of the site, however, seems to suggest that all households had already adopted and adapted to a new set of practices. Why and how they did this are questions we would like to see answered during the following campaigns.
