Rare Bronze Age discovery
« on: Monday, 15 December, 2014 @ 10:49:50 »
Archeologists have discovered a late Bronze Age cemetery and settlement at Rema Xydias, near Platamonas in Pieria. This is a significant discovery, as dwellings in the area dating to the 2nd millennium BC are considered rare. According to the announcement of the Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classic Antiquities, the stone foundations of two arched buildings and walls have been uncovered, which are thought to delimit the residential area of the settlement.

The settlement and cemetery were uncovered during the construction and tunneling taking place on the national high way in the area.
