  • In 2015 the French School at Athens resumed research on Anavlochos. The archaeological, topographical and geomorphological surveying of the range, carried out under the responsibility of F. Gaignerot-Driessen, have been initiated as part of a two-year programme (2015-2016). As a result of the 2015 season, the remains noted by P. Demargne in the inhabited area and at Kako Plai have been found and plotted. It has also been possible to identify the limits of the Geometric inhabited area, which occupied the central valley of the range over about a dozen hectares, and to specify how it was laid out. In total, 300 ancient architectural structures have been found, mapped, described, and photographed, while the surface material has been collected and undergone preliminary study.

    The 2015 season benefited from the financial support of the FSA, the Action de Recherche Concertée project 'A World in Crisis?' (UCLouvain), the Universitty of North Carolina (UNC), the University of Paris-Sorbonne (ED 124), EA 7338 and UMR 8167.

    KIFISSIA, Deligianni 39-6060
    Kifissia, Deligianni 39 (O.T. 174A, property of Sarantopoulou). Maria Stefanopoulou (B' ????) reports on the discovery of houses and burials (Fig. 1). The area attests to a long use from the EH to the Byzantine periods. A floor and EH pottery sherds are the only remains of the earlier phase. Late Geometric pottery sherds may indicate that the area was inhabited during this period too. Part of a Late Archaic building was excavated, consisting of rubble walls. Seven ditches, 2 cairns and 2 pits containing EH and Archaic pottery sherds are contemporary to this building. A stone paved area, 2 walls and 5 cairns are dated to the early Classical period. From the second half of the 5th c. B.C. the area was converted to a cemetery. A peribolos wall of rectangular stone blocks was excavated. Th
