  • [01] Prehistoric findings unearthed in Sikeona settlement in Karditsa

    Archaeological excavations in the greater region of Sikeona, Karditsa Prefecture in central Greece, have unearthed findings dating back to the Prehistoric Times.

    The prehistoric settlement of Sikeona is located north of the Enipeas River, east of the western part of the Thessaly plain.

    In the Neolithic Age the settlement occupied an important place in the dwelling network of the Karditsa plain linking the eastern section of the Thessaly plain and Volos Bay with its western part toward the Pindos Mountain range.

    Excavations conducted between 2006 and 2008 unearthed a large number of tools, ceramics, vessels used for cooking, statuettes and small objects such as stamps and jewelry.
