The center room of the West House at the Vasiliki archaeological site, determined by matching satellite imagery with the plan of the building in Figure 41.1, page 276 in Meyers, Aerial Atlas of Ancient Crete. Meyers dates the creation of the West House to EM IIB (2500-2200 BC). Vasiliki suffered a series of destructive fires at the end of EMIIB, at which time the West House was destroyed, and during MMI, but settlement at the site continued through the Late Minoan period.
