Fournou Korifi is the archaeological site of a Minoan settlement on southern Crete.


Fournou Korifi was built at the top of a steep hill, with excellent views of the coast.


Fournou Korifi was first excavated in 1967 by Peter Warren. The settlement was in use only during the Early Minoan II period. Among the artefacts excavated were two weaving looms.

Several theories on the interpretation of the 100-room site are available from Peter Warren, Branigan and Todd Whitelaw.
