Megistos Kouros

Studies in honour of Hugh Sackett

Uitgegeven door Jan Driessen, Carl Knappett

This volume represents a tribute by friends, family and colleagues to Hugh Sackett, a British archaeologist who led important excavations at Knossos, Palaikastro and Lefkandi in Greece. Organised in two parts, Reminiscences and Archaeological Contributions, the texts speak both to Hugh's dual life as archaeologist and teacher, and his important contributions to Aegean and Greek prehistory. These varied papers, many richly illustrated, refl ect on his impact in the fi eld or discuss specifi c details of the sites he worked on. Other texts treat more general aspects of Greek prehistory. Many of the contributions discuss the site of Palaikastro where Hugh worked fi rst in the early 1960s and then again from 1983 onwards.
