Two Bronze Age sites are presented, known as the Tomb and the Deposit, originally excavated in the 1930s but until now never published in detail. The Tomb represents the earliest known funerary site at Bronze Age Knossos, established in the late Prepalatial period and continuing in use until the Neopalatial. The function of the nearby Deposit site is more ambiguous, but a mortuary interpretation is also possible for the phases contemporary with the Tomb, and is almost certain for the subsequent Late Minoan II III era.

This volume presents the excavated material held principally in the Stratigraphical Museum at Knossos. The stone artefacts, human remains, faunal remains, glyptic material and ceramics are described and discussed by Don Evely, Rebecca Gowland, Valasia Isaakidou, Olga Krzyszkowska and Laura Preston respectively, and the sites are placed within the broader framework of Minoan mortuary practices at Knossos during the second millennium BC.
