Il quartiere ad ovest del Piazzale I. Strutture e ritrovamenti delle terrazze mediana e superiore
Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia
This work, based on my 2007 MA dissertation for the Italian Archaeological School at Athens focuses on two Protopalatial houses of Phaistos (Crete), excavated by the Italian Archaeological Mission. These are located in an area known as the ‘Quarter West of the West Court’ (Piazzale i) of the Phaistos palace, which consists of blocks of houses situated on three terraces, set at different levels, located West of a street that leads North and runs along the west side of the court. The first house is located on the middle terrace of the slope hill and is composed of five rooms (c, ci, ciii, icα and icβ). The second is placed on the higher ter- race and consists of two rooms (xcvii-xcviii, cii).
