Assiros Toumba Excavation 1985-1988
The aim of this excavation was to further carry out the excavation of the Assiros Toumba, previously excavated between 1975-1980. Work continued in areas previously excavated and new trenches were opened in the southern side of the mound. Below the the floor level, the remains of earlier iron age buildings destroyed by fire were found. Further work on the seeds was undertaken and new rooms containing them were excavated. Debris from bronze-casting and a large block of stone which had been deeply grooved were found on the same level as circuit rounds on the Western wall. A street surfaced with sherds and pebbles was found in the southern part of the mound and appears to have been in constant use in the end of the bronze age and early iron age occupation. A pair of late-geometric apsidal buildings were also uncovered. As well as this a pithoi burial was located.
Active from 1985 to 1988.
