Description : Daskalio (Greek: Δασκαλιό) is a tiny uninhabited Greek islet in the Cyclades just off the west coast of the larger island Keros and formerly a promontory thereof. Its diameter is approximately 150 metres. Excavation by the Cambridge Keros Project, a joint endeavour of the University of Cambridge, the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades and the Cyprus Institute, in 2008 revealed a large Bronze Age settlement and ten years later researches from the university found evidence of advanced metalworking workshops there, dating from 2500 BC.
