Map of the Central Cyclades, with the large islands of Paros and Naxos top left, and Amorgos bottom right. Between them is a small group of islands including Keros. Below Dhaskalio is almost inaccessible, but a temporary landing stage and pathway up the rock was rigged up for the excavators.
Top left The island of Kouphonisi where the excavation team is centred. Today it has everything that finds favour in the modern world. It is flat, fertile, and has fine sandy beaches for the modern tourists. But for the rituals of the Early Bronze Age, the harsh rugged terrain of Keros was preferred.
Left Crossing to the excavation site in a fishing boat. On the left is the large island of Keros, on the right is the small conical island of Dhaskalio.
