Excavation of two 'special'(ritual) Early Bronze Age deposits on the shore at Kavos, and of an Early Bronze Age settlement on the neighbouring islet of Dhaskalio.  As a result of continuing study in 2009, an extensive 3-phase EBA settlement at Dhaskalio is now seen to have flourished after the main use of the special deposits. The results of specialist studies include a rare find of the domesticated olive.
