In the framework of the 12th Cretological Congress, with the concept of transportation as a general topic, one research question that could emerge is the movement of people from one place to another in order to find work. Thus, the aim of this paper is the presentation of transportation issues in Venetian Crete during the 16th and 17th centuries in terms of movement for professional purposes to a new workplace, as they are referred to in the archival data, namely the various notarial acts. Methodologically, we research work contracts in both published and unpublished notarial acts among the numerous Cretan notaries. Therefore, we will investigate any available references on the transportation of people in Crete through these contracts, either domestic or overseas. Furthermore, we will try to reveal the patterns and networks of these movements.
