Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to study the distribution of the Günsenin 3 amphora in Central Greece, during the Middle and Late Byzantine period (ca. 12th-15th centuries). Currently, this amphora is mostly known from shipwreck excavations in the Mediterranean region. Therefore, the two case studies of Orionos street excavation at Chalkis and the survey at the Almirós area, are used to study the distribution patterns of the Günsenin 3 amphora on land. The two case studies show that the amphora was a popular transport jar. This is supported by evidence from shipwrecks, where the amphora was present on shipwrecks dating from the 12th to the 14th century.
