History of Skyros Island

<< back
Skyros Island has very little history due to lack of historical rescourses. In 322 BC Macedonians conquered the island. In 86 BC Romans prevailed in Skyros. During Byzantine times the island was transformed into a land of banishment. In 1204 the island was conquered by the Venetians until 1538, when Turks arrived. The residents of Skyros participated in the Revolution of 1821. The island was finally liberated in 1830.
