House, Household, and Community at LM IIIC Vronda, Kavousi Chapter uri icon


  • The study of houses and households at Vronda, Kavousi, provides insights into the social organisation of the community in the Late Minoan IIIC period. Three levels of analysis are important in this discussion: the identification of residential units, the identification of household activity areas, and the relationship of household units to the spatial and social organisation of the settlement. The domestic complexes differ from other classes of architecture at the site, such as Building A-B (the 'Big House') and Building G (the communal shrine). While there is clear evidence of social ranking and centralised religion, the individual household still functioned as a basic organisational unit of the Vronda community
