Cambridge Keros Project 2006-2008
A principal objective of this season was to have a further exploration of the settlement on Dhaskalio. A survey and a catalogue of all visible surface features were completed, along with photography via a groundcontrolled helicopter, and kite and pole. Work on the Special Deposit South was completed and small caves and cavities lying to the south of the Deposit were further investigated. No evidence was found to support the existence of an Early Cycladic settlement in the Middle Area. Excavation focused on the summit area where a structure ca.16m was revealed. On the summit immediately to the south of the main building, a roughly circular enclosure where a number of finds were found including pebbles from Ano Kouphonisi beach and several examples of what may now be considered the Dhaskalio variety of the schematic figurines of the Keros-Syros period, some of which are complete. None of the folded-arm figurines commonly found (always broken) in the Special Deposit South.
Active from 2006 to 2008.
