The paper presents the preliminary results of the excavations of 2017 season at the Mycenaean site of Kastrouli, Phokis. It attempts as well a preliminary interpretation of the data obtained during the 2016 season, now based on the first results of the still ongoing archaeometric research. During the second season of excavation a circular feature in the eastern side of the fortification wall has been investigated, and a second gate with its access ramp has been located, in addition to the gate already known on the western side. On the E-SE side of the fortified area some walls and foundations visible on the surface led to the excavation of the Building 1, which has been destroyed by fire. Further, a very long wall belonging to a large building (Building 2), or possibly to a complex of buildings, has been cleaned and documented on the southern terrace of the fortified area. Finally, two large holes dug by looters, one close to the Western gate and the other close to the Tomb A, have been examined and refilled with soil.
