Mochlos, an island off the coast of Crete, is home to one of the best preserved Minoan sites. It contains both a cemetary and a settlement representative of a more common class of Minoans than the palatial sites further up on the mainland. This is the original site report for this key archaeological dig and includes the process of its discovery and the first finds from the residential areas. This includes both color and black and white photographs of the ceramic finds, pictures and diagrams of the buildings in various stages of excavation, and pictures of the island itself. This article presents a view of the discovery and early excavation process of an early 20th century dig in a clear and interesting format and is an important piece of a key historical site.
