The hill of Aghios Andreas (425 m.) is located in southern Siphnos, Greece, in a dominant and highly strategic position, since it controls a large part of the island, as well as a large part of the Aegean Sea. A mighty fortified citadel was founded at the top of the hill during the Mycenaean period (13th century BC). The citadel was abandoned at prehistoric times during the late 12th/early 11th century BC. It was re-inhabited in historical times and reached its peak between the 8th and 6th centuries BC, while there is also evidence for human activity as late as the 2nd century BC.
In the course of the project the greatest part of the citadel was uncovered, both the mighty and magnificent Mycenaean wall and the dense urban web, mainly of historical times, built on top of the buildings of the Mycenaean period. Inter alia, a large sanctuary, probably dedicated to a female deity – possibly Artemis -, buildings, streets, and a system of managing rain-water, as well as an abundance of diverse movable finds were uncovered. The configuration and enhancement of the monumental citadel at Aghios Andreas creates a fully organized archaeological site, unique in Siphnos and open to the public.
