After the first rescue excavations in 1969, the site was totally abandoned; the old test trenches opened by Ε. Mastrokostas and S. Marinatos were almost invisible, due to heavy vegetation growth. Thus, in 2014, our new research program focused mainly on the clearing of the test trenches, in order to uncover the architectural remains and make detailed plans and sections.

In 2016, the excavation added significantly to our knowledge. Concerning the prehistoric times, the partly excavated structures of the EH period in Trenches 003, 006 and 010 reinforce the idea that the settlement was established at least during the EH II period.
