This article is a preliminary report of two seasons of excavation at the Bronze Age site of Punta di Zambrone in southern Calabria (Italy). Two main habitation phases could be identified dating to the Early and the Recent Bronze Age respectively. The ashy layers of the Recent Bronze Age phase (13th - 12th centuries BCE) contained an exceptionally high quantity of Aegean-type ceramics, other Aegean-type objects and large amounts of local artefacts as well as charred plant remains. These finds are treated in the present report, and the relationships between Recent Bronze Age Italy and early post-palatial Mycenaean Greece are discussed.
