  • 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.

    GLYFADA - Gr. Lampraki-6110
    Glyfada, Gr. Lampraki 5-7 (DEH works). Styliani Psarri (???' ????) reports on the discovery of a tile grave. The dead person had been placed directly on the bedrock with his hands on his chest (Fig. 1). No offerings were found and the burial cannot be dated. Nevertheless, the excavator notes that this burial resembles the Late Roman ones found 400 m. to the south, at Asteria (Kaza-Papageorgiou 2006, 50).
