Abstract:   The settlement of Zygouries in the northeast Peloponnese, excavated in 1921 and 1922, provides a valuable example of an Early Helladic village, with winding streets and modest, double-chambered houses. The associated tombs, found in the form of ossuaries, throw new light on the burial customs and religious ideas of the Early Bronze Age. A potter's shop contains more than 1,330 vases dating to ca. 1300 B.C. and other exciting finds include a Cycladic figure providing evidence of commerce between the islands and the mainland in the 3rd millennium B.C.
