Azoria. D. Haggis (ASCSA/North Carolina) and M. Mook (ASCSA/Iowa State) report on the 2nd season of study and conservation following the 2002−2006 excavations. Study of iron artefacts and slag allowed the identification of a number of smithing hearth bottoms from EIA and Ar fill levels. Seventeen inscribed sherds (6th−5th Ct BC) were studied for publication. Animal bone identifications were completed, and querns were sampled for residue analysis. Study of the human remains from the small tholos tomb in trench 3700 indicates a minimum of 7 individuals (5 adults, 2−3 children). All structures on the SW slope of the S acropolis were conserved.
