The first palace to be
constructed on the site was built around 1900 BCE.
Little is known of this palace though some finds from
the Old Palace period attest to the wealth of the Old
Palace at Malia. This palace was later destroyed,
probably by an earthquake. The first attempt to excavate
the site was made in 1915 by Joseph Hadzidakis but the
full excavation of the Palace and much of the
surrounding town was conducted by the French
Archaeological School under F. Chapouthier and are still
continuing today. Like the other palaces Malia has a
west court. The west wing of the Palace, which probably
had two storeys, contained magazines, cult rooms and
