There is for a start no Lakonian equivalent of the Franchthi cave. Its nearest rival, however, is in Lakonia, the Alepotrypa (‘Fox-hole’) cave in south Mani on the east coast of the Messenian Gulf; but this does not seem to have come into its own until towards the end of the Neolithic (Figure 4).
In general I have avoided citing modern population figures, partly because there are inherent dangers in interpreting census-returns (Cox 1970,33–43), in part because the most reliable modern census, that of 1961 (Kayser 1965), was taken well after Greece had been sucked into the orbit of international finance capital. It is, however, perhaps worth noting that one third of the 19 Sparta and Lakonia total population was then living on less than 5 per cent of the total surface area, almost one half on less than 15 per cent.
For reasons which it is outside the scope of this book to explore, these destructions have been attributed to Indo-European invaders from the north, who spoke an early form of Greek, rode horses and used the potter’s wheel. Suffice it to say here that this neat connection cannot be demonstrated on linguistic or archaeological grounds (Hooker 1976; 1977,120–32). 2000 and 1900 the EH culture gave way to the Middle Helladic (MH), that the foremost types of MH pottery were thrown on the wheel and that some time before the inscription of the earliest known Linear B tablets (Chapter 5) a form of Greek was being spoken in mainland Greece.
