Christina A. Televantou, ‘The Neolithic Settlement at Strofilas, Andros Expanding the horizons of Cycladic prehistory and iconography’

Cycladic Seminar, Tuesday, 2 April 2013

The excavations on the plateau of Strofilas, on the west coast of Andros, have unearthed the ruins of a large settlement belonging to the “Attica-Kephala” cultural horizon of the Final Neolithic (FNL) period. Its growth is attributable largely to the strategic location of Andros near Attica, especially the area around Lavrion, coupled with the fact that it was an important hub and port of call on the Neolithic sea routes for the transport of goods (e.g. Melian obsidian and metal ore) and the transmission of technology and ideas between the Cyclades, the Mainland, Euboea and the NE Aegean.
