The Koutroulou Magoula Archaeology and Archaeological Ethnographic Project 2010-2019: Season 2019

Excavation: Research excavation

The site’s main period of occupation is Middle Neolithic (c. 5,800–5,300 BC), although there is also a small Late Bronze Age tholos on top of the mound and at least two Byzantine-period burials. The BSA’s ten-year involvement at this site, in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Phthiotis & Evrytania, experienced one of its most successful seasons since the start of the project. The following aims were met: to clarify the nature and history of occupation on top of the tell, to confirm the existence of a kiln area on its southeastern slope and to investigate further the perimeter ditch’s creation, use and maintenance. Notable finds this year included an impressive, partially preserved house model, found in eight pieces most likely broken deliberately in situ. It is clear that the southern half of the trench area contained a kiln complex, a find of major significance for this period, the third of this kind known from the Middle Neolithic (after nearby Imvrou Pigadi and, more recently, Magoula Rizava to the west). Five fill contexts were recognised in the ditch, the lower of which may represent an extensive period of natural filling, suggesting the site was abandoned for a long period. Possible uses include water management and clay extraction.
