Type of Operation
Ephoreia of Palaeoanthropology and Speleology for Southern Greece
Diros, Xagounaki. G. Papathanasopoulou (Ephoreia of Palaeoanthropology and Speleology for Southern Greece) reports the discovery of an undisturbed grave containing three adult burials (probably Final Neolithic) in the location where an undisturbed double child enchytrismos was found in 2011. This group of burials and the large quantity of pottery and tools found indicates the existence of ordered settlement in the area, in connection with the Alepotrypa Cave. No post-Neolithic remains were found. A geophysical survey was made of the Xagounaki area (the Neolithic acropolis of Diros) north of the entrance to the cave.
