Archontiki - Daskalio

North of the churches of Saint Markella and Saint Dimitrios, there is a sandy/pebbly beach by the archaeological site of Archontiki. The area has signs of habitation from the Neolithic to the Protogeometric period. The main findings, such as the cemetery and the settlement, are from the Mycenaean period (1500 BC to 1000 BC). The islet of Daskalio is very close to the beach. In ancient times, Daskalio and Archontiki were linked, forming a small peninsula with a natural harbor which travelers called ‘Da Scalio.’ Ruins of the settlement and the cemetery can still be seen today, some in the sea. Daskalio and Agio Nikolakis were the Psarians’ last two points of resistance during the 1824 holocaust in Psara, when more than half of the island's inhabitants were killed or captured by the Ottomans. But while the soldiers of Agio Nikolakis surrendered, those at Daskalio did not and were blown up with its gunpowder stocks. All the Greek fighters were killed, except three who were badly injured.
