Excavations were first conducted in 1921. An ancient settlement existed at Mallia from the end of the Neolithic period. A palace was constructed there at the end of the third millennium B.C. (rebuilt c. 1700 B.C.). It consisted of a complex of rooms around a central court with storerooms, workshops, and loggias. Its layout resembles the layouts of the palaces of Knossos and Phaestus. Residential districts with comfortable, luxurious houses were also discovered in Mallia. The city was destroyed about 1400 B.C. A necropolis of the third and second millennia B.C. was discovered near Mallia.
