Main Article Content

Jakub Niebieszczański


This paper provides an overview of the first results of the Anthemous Valley Archaeological Project II, financed by the Polish National Science Centre (grant: 2013/09/N/HS3/ /01092). The aim of the project is to reconstruct the former landscapes of the alluvial Anthemous Valley in Northern Greece, near Thessaloniki City, in the light of archaeological and palaeogeographical data. The paper presents the results of two field surveys, which were conducted in 2013 and 2014 in order to gain a general understanding of the diversity of sedimentary environments in the valley in a wider context. Some palaeogeographical observations are also given.
