Neolithic Site of Avgi

The Neolithic site of Avgi is located on a hilly terrain (altitude 740 m) in the Kastoria region, 7 km west of the city of Argos Orestikon. It is a farmers’ settlement founded 7500 years ago (about 5650 BC). During its about 1,000 year life, the settlement was developed on an area 50 to 60 acres, the boundaries of which were defined by two successive trenches. The study of the archaeological material contributes to understanding the use of various sections of the settlement, construction practices, dietary habits and other aspects of everyday life in the Neolithic Dawn.
