This monograph examines the settlement history of a small island
off the coast of southeast Crete and its exploitation by the
settlements in the southern part of the Ierapetra Isthmus. Recent
archaeological discoveries by the 24th Ephorea on Chryssi Island
led to an intensive survey that uncovered numerous sites, dating
from the Final Neolithic to the Ottoman period. The results from
this study provided significant evidence for the exploitation of
this small island (i.e. purple dye) through the centuries, and in
turn the broader changes in settlement patterns that occurred along
the south coast of Crete. Further, the archaeological investigation
on Chryssi Island helped better our understanding of the
'colonization' of such marginal landscapes, the insular character
of their communities, and their ties with the nearby coastal towns.
