Do Italians do it better? Handmade burnished ware from Thronos Kephala (ancient

Handmade Burnished Ware (HBW) is one of the most debated ceramic classes of Late Palatial and Post Palatial Greece, whose chart of distribution includes the Mainland, Crete, Cyprus and the Levant. Recent studies have made clear that the main parallels for HBW may be found in the handmade production of Southern Italy and, to a lesser extent, Northern Greece. In the last study seasons carried out on thematerial from Thronos Kephala (ancient Sybrita) a group of sherds which may be referred to HBWwas identified. Although a fragment of HBWwas already known from the site, the circulation in the settlement of a few vases realized following a foreign tradition of pottery manufacture in the course of the 12th century BC deserves a deeper enquiry. It is the aim of this paper to present some preliminary results on this new archaeological evidence trying to assess its importance within the local context and in the wider world.
