Amyklai I: Traces of a settlement on the top and the east side of the hill of Hagia Kyriaki dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C. The earliest human presence on the hill, most probably a settlement, is dated to the late Early Helladic period, according to the large quantity of EH II pottery of fine and coarse ware and a small amount of MH minyan ware. Furthermore pits have been noted over the entire surface of the hilltop in order to set storage jars in them. In conjunction with this fact, perhaps the cuttings in the bedrock, sometimes near the circular pits, are traces of early dwellings in the Amyklaion. Furthermore, the clear level containing this material is an indication that the EH and the smaller MH settlement was partially abandoned, probably during the Late Bronze Age for the needs of the subsequent use of the area as mycenean sanctuary.
Amyklaion I: Religious activity is attested by the large number of figures and figurines. The Mycenaean sanctuary was established in the second half of the 13th century B.C. and continued to prosper until the second half of the 11th century B.C. This period is equal to Amyklai II when the settlement moved westwards where it remained probably until modern times.
Amyklaion II: Cult activity in the context of an open air sanctuary continued through the succeeding Early Iron Age into Protogeometric and Geometric times.The particular place that the settlement of Amyklai had in the region of Laconia during the Early Iron Age is evidenced by its mention in the Homeric lists of ships (II. 2584), among others. A general interpretation, that is derived from the archaeological evidence as well as from literary and historical sources, leads to the conclusion that the settlement Amyklai was incorporated into the city of Sparta by Teleklos around 750 B.C., as its fifth obe, and, in this way, it began the process of shaping a new political identity.
Amyklaion III: First monumentalisation phase of the hill with the erection of the early peribolos-retaining wall and the colossal cult statue during the late 8th to the end of the 7th century B.C. During this period Sparta prevailed in the two Messenian wars and founded the colony of Taras.
Amyklaion IV: Second monumentalisation phase of the hill during the 6th century B.C. as a response to the increased needs with regard to both the rituals and the increasing number of devotees. The sanctuary is in the most prominent shape because of the temple – so called thronos -, the circular altar and the new peribolos-retaining wall.
Amyklaion V: Traces on the peribolos, fragments of architectural members and remains of a large building on the north end of the hill are attesting building activity at the sanctuary from classical times to late antiquity (5th century B.C. – 5th century A.D.).
Amyklaion VI: Demolishment of the ancient monuments and transformation of the hill into a cemetery and a quarry throughout the byzantine and post byzantine era (11th – 19th century A.D.).
Amyklaion VIΙ: It is confirmed that the church of Hagia Kyriaki, on the top of the homonymous hill, exists there since 1800 and afterwards.
