The Kastro Kallithea Archaeological Project was conducted between 2007-2013 as a collaboration between the CIG and the 15th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities at Larissa. It was directed by Sophia Karapanou (15th Ephorate) and Margriet Haagsma (University of Alberta). The focus of the study was a heavily fortified Hellenistic city in southern Thessaly, and its environmental and political setting, examining architecture, the economic context, and the city’s occupation history. Results indicate at least four phases of occupation; the first is shown through Iron Age tholos tombs, while the acropolis wall, erected before the Hellenistic occupation, shows a second. The majority of the city’s architectural remains show the Hellenistic phase (early-3rd -2nd century BCE), and there is also evidence of limited Roman and post-Roman activity.
