This is the site report from the excavation of the North cemetery in Corinth and represents a continuation of the report from the 1929 season, which began the excavation. Unlike other sections of Corinth, which was completely destroyed by the Romans under Mummius in 146 BC, the grave sites still contain remnants of pre-Roman Corinth, reflecting the city in its glory days as one of the most wealthy and powerful poleis of Greece due to its control of the isthmus of Corinth. Included in the report are photographs of some of the highlights of the finds made, including finds from the Helladic and Geometric periods as well as pictures of the site itself. This is one of the few site reports on Corinth that details such pre-Roman finds and is of interest to those curious about this period in the history of a key polis.
