Perachora Excavation 1930-1939: Season 1931
Excavation: Research excavation
During the first weeks attention was concentrated on the area in which the principal finds had been made last year-the area, that is, which votive inscriptions proved to be the neighbourhood of the temple of Hera, and in which there is a rectangular complex of walls of various dates. At the same time a pit opened last year on the slope some 20 yards below this upper area was systematically enlarged. The excavation of the lower part of the site, near the ' small harbour,' also made satisfactory progress. The first task was to continue clearing the immediate neighbourhood of the temple which was uncovered last year. As this was being done a number of marble roof-tiles, a pair of palmette-antefixes, and fragments of a statue of Island marble were found.
