Extrait du texte

The North-East Wing and the court of the Court-Centred Building (CCB) at Sissi were excavated in 2015 and 2016 in what was initially called Zone 6 (figs 1.1, 1.2 & 1.11). The exploration of this zone continued the work started in 2008 by S. Jusseret, who had identified the remains of a court adjoining Building F, of which the initial use was dated to the Neopalatial period but which was largely reoccupied in LM IIIA2/B (Sissi I: 157-161; II: 163- 170; III: 135-154). This report first focuses on the North-East Wing of the CCB, before describing the excavation of the court itself.
