B.E.J. Dahlberg's theorems on the mutual absolute continuity of harmonic and surface measures, and on the unique solvability of the Dirichlet problem for Laplace's equation with data taken in L p spaces p > 2 - δ are extended to compact polyhedral domains of ℝ n. Consequently, for q < 2 + δ, Dahlberg's reverse Hölder inequality for the density of harmonic measure is established for compact polyhedra that additionally satisfy the Harnack chain condition. It is proved that a compact polyhedral domain satisfies the Harnack chain condition if its boundary is a topological manifold. The double suspension of the Mazur manifold is invoked to indicate that perhaps such a polyhedron need not itself be a manifold with boundary; see the footnote in Section 9. A theorem on approximating compact polyhedra by Lipschitz domains in a certain weak sense is proved, along with other geometric lemmas.
