Linear B Tablet

Linear B Tablet (SF40)

In the triangular space formed by the east end of wall N-041 and the south wall of drain α we found a burned refuse pit, approximately 1 m. deep.  In the pit we found a fragment of a Linear B tablet and pottery dating to the LH IIB/IIIA1/early LH IIIA2 periods, which makes it the earliest stratified Linear B tablet from the Greek Mainland. The tablet is under study for publication by Professor Cynthia Shelmerdine.  For more information and news coverage of this improtant find, please see the News link on the right.
