Abstract

The present work is a study on the burial customs of Clazomenae in the Iron Age and Archaic period. Special attention is given to Clazomenae, since it yielded significant information from the Protogeometric to the end of the Archaic period. The major aim here is to collect the specific grave and necropolis information and try to interpret them for reaching more holistic conclusions about the burial customs of Clazomenae. This work introduces the burials, burial grounds, and cemeteries of Clazomenae from the Protogeometric to the end of the Archaic period with respect to grave types, grave goods, burial practices, gender, and age. One crucial aim of this work is to understand settlement and necropolis relationship in different periods by the means of the location of the burial grounds; the significance of the extension, development, and changing burial customs of specific cemeteries and their importance with regards to the settlement pattern; and the importance of the continuity, discontinuity, and change of burial grounds through the periods.
