Syros Kastri

The fortified early-Cycladic settlement of Kastri dates back to circa 2300-2220 BC. This is the most important fortifying construction of the 3rd millennium BC in the Aegean, with towers and gates. Its extent, the variety in the plan views of the excavated houses, the portable findings (samples of pottery, stone carving, miniature art and metalwork) indicate a flourishing society that had developed relations with the coasts of Asia Minor.
