Dema House Excavation 1958-60
During a survey of the Dema Wall in Attica, an isolated 5th century BC house was found in front of a vulnerable section of the fortification. The aim of the projet was to determine the question of the relation of this site to the wall and examine the building itself. To do so, a preliminary cleaning in 1958 and a complete excavation in 1960 were carried out. It was established that the house is secondary to the Dema wall and that it was built against it with re-used material of uncertain date. Small finds were scanty and hardly representative of the possessions expected in a house of this size, but they comprised various terracotta objects and fragments.
Active from 28 Aug 1958 to Aug 1960.
