This detailed report describes archaeological fieldwork conducted between 1995 and 1997 in rural northeast Crete. Excavations were made in two locations: a metallurgy workshop (abandoned in EM III) and a nearby rural habitation site, perhaps a farmhouse (used until LM III). An intensive survey of the vicinity revealed other activities in the area from the Early Neolithic onwards, and placed the sites in a micro-regional context. A publication of the Minoan farmhouse will appear subsequently, but this volume stands on its own as both an overview of the project, and as a detailed study of the copper smelting workshop.... grid was established to aid in the mapping of the area. Under the supervision of Lada Onyshkevych, this work was accomplished with a Topcon GTS 303 Electronic Total Station attached to a Gateway 2000 Handbook (486) laptop computer.
