During our meeting, we will walk around Mochlos, the village which is famous for the numerous archeological sites of Minoan times (3000-1200BC). Starting at our meeting point in Mochlos parking area, where guests will come with their own car, we will walk to enjoy the view of the settlement and the surrounding plain from above, introduce ourselves to Cretan natural and man-made landscape and start our trip in the past. We will visit the secret prehistoric cemetery of 14-13th century BC, have a tour at the remains of Minoans houses and workshops of 15th century BC and discover -from a distance and with the help of maps and pictures- the minoan town of Mochlos islet of 3rd and 2nd millenium BC: the buildings, the tombs, the artifacts, the people. Extra: Weather permitting and if guests want to, we could visit the islet by boat (5€ extra per person for the boat, which is not included in the price). Note: We will not visit organized archeological sites.
Il tuo host
I am an archaeologist and I have chosen to live in a small village in East Crete as a member of the local community, an amateur farmer and an explorer of the surrounding historical landscape. The experience I offer is taking place in this area, where I am working the last 16 years. I have experience in archaeological survey, excavation and monument’s restoration, scientifically focused in medieval topography, architecture and wall painting’s ontology. I am specialized in cultural heritage management and thus, I love to share my knowledge about the history of land and people of Crete.

Artifacts of different materials, as gold jewlery, stone miniature vases, ceramic ritual objects etc are decorating today Museums of Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia.
