The British Museum's holding of Greek Geometric pottery comprises 200 items, covering the period from the 10th to the 7th century BC. Most of these pieces have never been published before. The bulk of the collection - 123 pieces - is Attic, but eleven other regional styles are also represented. These include not only mainland Greek fabrics such as Argive, Boeotian, Corinthian and Laconian, but also the island fabrics of the Cyclades and Crete, as well as those of East Greece and Caria. The collection is particularly strong in Melian and Rhodian styles. A brief overview of each style precedes the detailed descriptions of the pieces, so that the book serves not only as a catalogue but also as an introduction to the major local fabrics of Early Iron Age Greece. Every piece is illustrated, many with multiple views and some with additional line drawings. This catalogue is British Museum Fascicule 11 in the Great Britain series of the international Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum.
