  The Neolithic settlement of Mikro Vouni
by StefanosS
 
 

On the west coast, south of Aghios Andreas cape, there is a small hill, or rather a small elevation of the ground. Archaeologists have found here a settlement of Neolithic Age, dating back since 6,000 BC. Excavations are still in progress, so the place is not visitable. The findings are very important, as among them there are artefacts of Minoan art and inscriptions in Linear A script, found for the first time so far from Crete island. Many of them are exposed in the Museum of Paleopoli.

I had the chance to take the photo from the boat while making the sea tour of the island.
