EEN SURVEY IN HET GEBIED TEN NOORDEN VAN HELLENISTISCH HALOS (GRIEKENLAND)
In September 1990, a survey was started within the territory of the Hellenistic city of Halos; a project of the BAI, in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum at Volos (Greece). The aim of the fieldwork in 1990 was to map the archaeological remains in a region southeast of the village of Platanos in the Almirós Plain (Thessalia, Greece). The survey resulted in the location of 40 tumili sites, a Mycenaean tomb, a medieval settlement on the south bank of the Platanórrema and a prehistoric settlement on the north bank of the Amphrysos. The presence of graves in the neighbourhood and the artefacts on the surface indicated that the latter settlement prospered during the Late Bronze Age and the Mycenaean and Geometric periods. Artefacts collected on the Magoúla Plataniótiki dated in general to the Classical Period, confirming the supposition that the rising ground of the magoula is the site of Old Halos.
