Pseira, 2007. This Minoan seaport occupies a narrow peninsula jutting from a small island, now barren, in the Bay of Mirabello in northeast Crete. About sixty houses, some with relief frescos, surrounded a central court. Here archaeologists found pumice and windblown ash from the Bronze Age eruption of the volcano at Santorini, beneath an archaeological stratum deposited during the final phase of Minoan civilization. This showed that the eruption did not destroy the Minoan world, as once widely believed. The view looks southeast.
