Survival of Middle Helladic Traditions into the Early Late Bronze Age of Central Greece

Previous research has quite often wondered at the lack of sites dating from the early LBA in Central Greece. I intend to relate a different picture, suggesting that much of both unpainted and painted burnished types of pottery, which especially in surveys would be identified as MBA, is in fact already LBA in date. Whereas this was partly known for LH I, I would like to suggest that in more rural parts of Central Greece this was the case until well into LH IIB. The main duty for the future research will be to define, what did the non-mycenaean pottery of the Early LBA look like, both in terms of wares and shapes.
