AGIOS IOANNIS (Settlement) KYTHNOS
Kythnos also played an important role in the development of early metalworking. A significant Protocycladic (3,000 BC) site has been explored at Skouries. Laboratory analyses confirmed that Kythnos supplied the first raw material for making metal objects in the prehistoric Aegean, and research uncovered a copper quarry on the Tzouli headland.
