Every year the Greek seas give out priceless treasures. Last year many archeologists researched underwater the Mandraki region in Kitnos Island, which was a port in ancient times. From there, they took out a male torso in real size and a male head with beard, which is with well preserved facial characteristics. The underwater research was done under the supervision of the archeologist and professor in the Tesalian Universoty Prof. Alexandros Mazarakis-Enian and by the archeologist Dr. Dimitris Kourkoumelis who is from the underwater archeology service.


Arhondiko village in the Pella region


During the last few years, some of the most impressing findings were done in the Arhondiko village in the Pella region. This year, archeologists Pavlos and Anastasia Hrisostomou found 43 new tombs, which date from the Iron era (the second part of 7th century BC) to the Hellenic era (279 BC). A tomb of a little girl is distinguished from the Hellenic era, in which an exceptional clay head was found.
