Elateia 1 in Northeastern Thessaly 8000 Years Ago
Relative and Absolute Chronology of a Flat Extended Settlement
Keywords:Thessaly, flat sites, Early Neolithic, Middle Neolithic, absolute and relative chronology, pottery analysis
Intensive and systematic surveys in the area south of Mount Olympos and west of Mount Ossa revealed not only tell settlements, but also several flat sites from different prehistoric periods. For one of the settlements, namely Elateia 1, a detailed relative chronological assessment was made with the help of statistical evaluations of pottery assemblages. In addition, short-lived bone samples confirmed and more precisely defined the exact chronological position of this 10-hectare site within the Middle Neolithic period. The present study underlines the importance of statistical evaluations of complete pottery assemblages, even those obtained through survey investigations, and their significance for a better understanding of chronological, chorological and post-depositional processes.
