The prehistoric finds from the Halasarna survey project 2003-2006, Kos: A preliminary report
M. Georgiadis Aegean Archaeology 8 (2005-2006) : 7-19.
This is a preliminary report on the six most important prehistoric sites identified during the Halasarna Survey Project. The early occupation of Kos was until recently only slightly touched on by archaeological investigations and this survey has provided substantial data for better understanding of settlement on the island, in particular during the Neolithic and the Early Bronze Age. The six sites are presented here, emphasizing on their geographical setting and the general character of surface finds. The most diagnostic pottery fragments, chipped stone and ground stone tools are discussed in their chronological and functional contexts. The project revealed interesting characteristics of settlement patterns from the Late Neolithic through the Late Bronze Age.
