About Archaeology in Kythera

Located at the crossroads of vital Mediterranean trade routes that played a pivotal role throughout history and with an excellent vantage point that overlooked the Ionian, Aegean and Cretan seas, Kythera was an island highly prized by conquerors. Minoan, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Byzantine, Venetian and British forces occupied this prime strategic jewel and left their unique mark in Kythera’s archaeological record.
