Prehistoric Settlements Discovered in Greece

The above is a map of the area around Ptolemaida Greece. It’s about 330 miles northwest of Athens and is home to some interesting archaeological finds. According to a story on MSNBC two neolithic sites, dating to some 5,000-6,000 years ago, have been found. The two sites join approximately 25 others found in the area:

The first site, located on a plot earmarked for coal mining by Greece’s Public Power Corporation, yielded five human burials, as well as artifacts including clay figurines of humans and animals, sealstones, pottery and stone tools.

The second site dates to around the same time period and seems to be a stone tool workshop.
