Pylos, Palace of Nestor. S. Stocker (ASCSA) and J. Davis (Director, ASCSA) report on the 2009 study season.
Human remains from Mycenaean chamber tombs at Kato Rouga in Chora and from a third tomb in the Kokkevis group at Kato Englianos were examined. Study of wall-plaster and floor-plaster continued, and documentation of all painted plaster remaining in situ in the palace was begun. Study of Byzantine artefacts from the Northeast Gateway was completed, as was examination of Middle Helladic pottery from the so-called Petropoulos Trench. Progress was made in the documentation of pottery from the Pantries, while documentation of artefacts from graves is nearing completion.
