Richard B. Seager excavated the Minoan town and cemetery at Pseira in 1906–1907, but the work was not fully published. The Temple University excavations (1985–1994) under the direction of Philip P. Betancourt and Costis Davaras conducted an intensive surface survey of the island. The results of the survey on the small island off the northeast coast of Crete are published in two volumes. Pseira VIII presents the results from the corollary studies that accompany the surface survey. Pseira IX presents the results from the intensive surface survey.
