The Minoan mansion of Sklavokambos was discovered in 1930, while constructing the main road to Anogia and part of it was destroyed by the works. It is a multiple-story building with a main room where a clay ox head was found, along with a Late Minoan IB period style jug and a stone rhyton. The building had at least 17 rooms.

The findings from an upper story included 39 sealings, a cylindrical vessel, a stone hammer and a clay foot. Seal impressions from one the Sklavokambos sealings have been found in Zakros, Gournia and Hagia Triada.

No frescoes or gypsum finishings were found at the Sklavokambos building, which are commonly found in Minoan palaces.
