  • [01] Wall of ancient Macedonian city of Vergina revealed in excavation

    An excavation by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) at the archaeological site of Vergina has uncovered an exceptional fortification structure surrounding the ancient Macedonian city.

    According to a university announcement, the architectural elements of the enclosure indicate that it dates back to the reign of Cassander, in the early 3rd century B.C, a period when Macedonia was plagued by major turmoil, including civil wars and attacks from outside.

    The findings are of remarkable importance because the wall is preserved in perfect condition and its height reaches 1.90cm.

    The archaeological team also unearthed a large number of mobile findings, charred seeds and food dated from the 2nd- 1st century BC.
