The cultural development of the elongated and fertile island of Rhodes is favored by its geographical diversity, its size (1,400 square kilometers), and its location at the crossroads of the Eastern Mediterranean, the Aegean, and Asia Minor. The spread of settlement on Rhodes was a long process that lasted from the beginning of the Late Neolithic to the synoecism of the city of Rhodes in 408/407 bc. The first scanty evidence for the Early Bronze Age (EBA) period in Rhodes came to light during the Danish archaeological expedition on the island, which took place between 1902 and 1914. However, due to the uncertain provenance of these finds, the settlement pattern on the island during the EBA is still obscure. The knowledge of the period has been enlightened only by the systematic excavation at Asomatos in the wider area of Ialysos.
