Νεότεροι χρόνοι Είναι προφανές ότι η ανασκαφή του ασύλητου μινωικού ιερού κορυφής στον Άγιο Γεώργιο στο Βουνό έδωσε μοναδικά στοιχεία για τη μελέτη της λατρείας σε αυτού του τύπου τα ιερά. Το γεγονός είναι βέβαια αξιοσημείωτο, λόγω της ιδιάζουσας μορφής της λατρείας στα ιερά κορυφής, δεδομένης δηλαδή της κλειστής μινωικής ανακτορικής ή και οικιακής λατρείας.
