In this 1958 book all the evidence bearing on Mycenean influence in Italy was gathered together for the first time. This evidence consists almost entirely of Mycenean pottery found in south Italy, Sicily, and the Aeolian Islands. Earlier studies on the subject are reviewed in the light of this research and in relationship to Furumark's analysis and classification of Mycenean pottery, but the most important part of the book is devoted to Mycenean finds from the excavations at Lipari and Torre Catelluccia, and to the large amount of pottery, for the greater part unpublished, from Taranto. The book is based on first-hand study by the author on the sites and is supplemented by more than 350 illustrations of pottery fragments and complete vases, very few of which have been previously published, and maps of the central Mediterranean and Sicily. Mycenean connexions with north Italy are also discussed, and the question of possible penetration to other areas in the western Mediterranean is briefly considered.
