Chauchitsa Excavation 1921-1922
The site of Chauchitsa was noticed during WWI while digging trenches in the northern campaign of 1917. A number of artefacts were discovered at that time suggesting further investigation would be warranted. In 1921, S. Casson, Assistant Director of the British School at Athens, returned to Chauchitsa to carry out excavations, discovering two mounds, one of which proved to natural and a sites of burials. The excavations were continued the following year making it possible to discern burials methods and equipment and dating the cemeteries mainly to the early Iron Age. The second mound was investigated and proved to contain and undisturbed settlement site with Bronze Age, Early Iron Age and 4th-century BC strata.
Active from 1921 to 1922.
