For Pella prior to the middle of the 4th cent. BC, the excavation work carried out in the area of the new entrance to the archaeological area was of immense importance, for it has confirmed the continuous habitation, unbroken since the Early Bronze Age of the site where the Macedonian capital was established in, most probably, the late 5th cent. BC, as proven by graves from the Bronze and Iron ages, and from the Archaic and Classical eras. Most of what we know about Pella between the end of the 5th and the middle of the 4th cent. BC comes from the cemetery in the vicinity of the Agora, while the oldest building remains were found in the area of the sanctuary of Darron.
