LEFKANDI

In a windless and fertile location opposite Aulis, a settlement and a series of cemeteries shed plentiful light on a time period which, until their discovery, had been left in the darkness contained in its name. The hill of Xeropoli hid within it a hamlet with finds from the early Helladic times until Geometric times, while the exploration and finds from five cemeteries of the 10th century B.C., provided testimonies of prosperity and wealth, as well as continuous contact and relationships with the eastern Mediterranean basin.

It is also worth noting the presence of a long and narrow arched building of monumental dimensions in the Toumba cemetery, in which was discovered the tomb of a man and woman with many finds, along with four horses, revealing the magnificence of an Heroön.
