This volume focuses on the pottery classes of the `Entangled Tradition', recovered at the settlement of the `Serraglio' on Kos during the early Late Bronze Age period. The results reveal new information on the chronology, typology, and decoration of Koan Painted Fine (PF) and Painted Medium-Coarse to Coarse (PMC-C) ceramics. Moreover, the analysis of manufacturing processes and consumption patterns contributes to a better comprehension of the socio-cultural and political context in which Koan entangled classes were produced. The data presented in this volume indicate that PF and PMC-C ceramics represent a unique case of fully entangled classes in the Aegean, which merge features of the Koan `Local Tradition' with characteristics of the Minoan potting tradition into a new technological and stylistic language. Contacts between these different cultures are explained based on the theoretical model provided by `human mobility'. The specific Koan cultural synthesis was endorsed and promoted by the local elites of the `Serraglio', who aimed to participate in the `new environment' determined by the economic and cultural expansion of Neopalatial Crete. In this respect, the manufacture of Koan entangled classes served a dual role. On the one hand, using transport containers made in the PMC-C class, Koan products were exported and exchanged throughout the Aegean. In addition, the finer vessels of the Koan `Entangled Tradition' were utilized for promoting Minoan-type social practices at the `Serraglio'. Through these practices, Koan elites reshaped their identity and portrayed an image of higher status within the local social arena.
