The primary focus of the Mochlos excavation is not only to excavate archaeological material. Rather, our focus is to study and publish the material that we have excavated, allowing both the archaeological community to engage with it as well as the general public. Since 2013, the Mochlos Project has diligently pursued this objective. The current publication project focuses on the excavated extent of the Neopalatial town (1700-1450 BCE). Mochlos Volume IV detailed the eastern half of the town, including the house of a metal merchant and a ritual space in which sacred olive trees were grown, and it is now in publication. Mochlos Volume V, which focuses on the western half, is currently underway with the assistance of many student volunteers, senior staff members, and specialists. This volume focuses on the Ceremonial Building at the center of the settlement in addition to a house in which was found one of the most complete depictions of Minoan religion ever found in Crete.
