Prehistoric Macedonia

Research programme:

From 1924 to 1931 W.A. Heurtley excavated a number of sites in Central and Western Macedonia. He began in 1924 at the tomba at Vardino, followed by the first season of excavation at the tomba of Vardaroftsa in 1925, both sites located in the Vardar river valley north of Thessaloniki. Based on the findings from these two excavations, Heurtley carried out two seasons of survey of mounds. The first season was spent in the Chalkidiki area and the second in areas further north and west in the plain of Monastir north of Florina and in the Haliacmon valley between Kastoria and Kozani, primarily in order to understand pottery types found on prehistoric sites, building on the observations of Wace and Thompson a decade earlier. Heurtley carried out a second season at Vardaroftsa (1926) and then at Boubousti (1927) in the Haliacmon valley near Kastoria which he had initially explored in 1925 when surveying Macedonian mounds. An investigation of a series of mounds in the Chalkidiki followed in 1928 along with the excavation of two of them: Molyvopyrgo and Hagios Mamas. In 1929, he investigated two more Central Macedonian mounds: Saraste (in the Chalkidiki) and Kritsana (on road to Serres from Thessaloniki). In 1930, in Western Macedonia, he carried out one season of excavation at Servia and another season in 1931 at Armenochori located north of Servia. Heurtley's results from his archaeological activity in Macedonia resulted in his 1939 publication, Prehistoric Mcedonia: an archaeological reonnaissance of Greek Macedonia (west of the Struma) in the neolithic, bronze, and early iron ages.

Active from 1924 to 1931.
