Over a century of excavations by the Athens Archaeological Society at Eleusis have brought to light an extensive settlement spanning the third and the second millennia B.C. Besides being one of the most important commercial hubs and economic centers of the Bronze Age Aegean, that settlement is important because it is the predecessor of the later Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore.
These two volumes constitute the systematic publication of the prehistoric settlement at Eleusis. They include a detailed analysis of the stratigraphy, architecture, pottery, and small finds, which is used to reconstruct the formation and early history of one of the most important ancient Greek religious sites.
