Dispilio excavations


The first indications for the existence of a prehistoric lakeside settlement at the village Dispilio, near the Kastoria Lake were attested in the dry winter of 1932, when a vast number of wooden posts, potsherds and stone tools revealed because of the dramatically lowered water level of the lake. Professor A. Keramo-poulos undertook a limited survey back then and after almost 30 years, this time an architect and Professor of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, N. Moutsopoulos undertook a new survey that led to a more complete description. Since 1992 excavations are carried out by Prof. George Hourmouziadis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki).
