Abstract [en]

The chronology of the two Lerna shaft grave fills is explored. It is concluded that the assemblages derive from either a single, one-time event approximately contemporary with the Late Minoan IA Mature volcanic destruction level at Akrotiri, or two events so close in time that they can only tentatively be separated by ceramic or radiocarbon study. In the latter case, shaft grave 1 is slightly older than shaft grave 2. Because of their large size, well-defined ceramic range, and intersecting position between southern and Central Greece, the two assemblages offer additional tools to sequence and evaluate Late Helladic/Late Cycladic I deposits elsewhere
