Over the course of her excavations at the Minoan settlement of Gournia in east Crete more than a century ago, Harriet Boyd-Hawes uncovered all of the typical features of an urban society, including domestic architecture, official buildings and spaces, public amenities, and two extramural cemeteries.  Quite simply, Gournia has stood as the example of a typical Minoan urban settlement.
