The low mound of Korakou is conspicuously sited on the low plateau which extends westward from the Isthmus of Corinth. This volume reports on the results of numerous trial pits sunk by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 1915 and 1916, and the clearing of the revealed buildings. The site appears to have been occupied throughout the Bronze Age, with some burnt layers suggesting that this occupation was not continuous, and the excavation was an influential one in establishing the "Helladic" system of referring to prehistoric remains on mainland Greece.
