dc.description.abstract <p>Methodological questions concerning the interpretation of archaeological context and the way in which archaeologists approach synthesis and publication are matters of current theoretical interest. Over the past two decades, however, methodological and theoretical issues have focused on survey, while interpretive frameworks for excavation have been little discussed in the realm of classical and Aegean prehistoric archaeology. This workshop is intended to encourage discussion on the interpretation of context in excavation by looking at the sites of Vronda and Kastro at Kavousi, excavated from 1987 through 1990. These sites have yielded extensive remains from the Early Iron Age and provide an opportunity to focus on a stage in the interpretive process intermediate between the preliminary reports of excavation and final publication. Both the aim of reconstructing the systemic context through the interpretation of the archaeological record and the problems encountered during this process have wide-reaching ramifications that transcend Early Iron Age Kavousi.</p>
