Paliambela Archaeological Project
The archaeological project at Paliambela Kolindros is an international project that takes as its goal the systematic investigation, management and development of the prehistoric settlement at Paliambela, located in the Municipality of Kolindros. The Project began in 1999 and has continued until today. It is conducted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki under the direction of Prof. Kostas Kotsakis, in collaboration with the British School of Archaeology and the University of Sheffield, U.K., headed by Prof. Paul Halstead.
To date the excavation has uncovered important architectural elements, such as the ditches and stone circuit walls of the settlement and stone-paved yards, and a wealth of finds and food remains. Their combination with various palaeoecological, experimental and ethnographic studies, conducted within the framework of the archaeological programme, constitutes the starting point for the understanding of the lives of people during the Neolithic, and other periods, in this area.
