Ancient Psara
  

 
Life continued in Psara in post Mycenaean times. Finds from there, mainly pottery, indicate that it was inhabited from the Geometric period until late antiquity. The most important installation of historical times must have been at present day Mavri Rachi (Palaiokastro) where traces of habitation of Geometric times have been found. Nowadays remains of walls can be seen, mainly at an altitude above 40m., and the whole installation must have created the impression of a lofty city. Numerous pottery shards, identical with Chian vases, bespeak the close relations between the island and the neighboring Chios.
