The site of Azoria in East Crete is one of the mostly extensively excavated Archaic (700-500 BCE) settlements in Crete, with the remains of monumental civic buildings and evidence for large, distributed households. Here I present some of my ongoing research as the site's topographer on the relationship between households and civic institutions, using analyses of textile and food production equipment as well as Bayesian inferential methods to better understand possible use patterns of space.
