History


Description

Image: the cave is a through cave, almost a natural bridge.

Franchthi Cave is a very important archaeological cave: it is one of the most important Stone Age sites in Greece. Here is the only good evidence for a continuous sequence of habitation. The earliest evidence is possibly 35,000 B.C. (Upper Paleolithic). Better evidence begins ca. 20,000 B.C. (Middle Paleolithic). The latest finds are from 3000 B.C. (Final Neolithic). The excavations in the cave are several trenches, the deepest one is 11 meters deep, another one 9 meters deep.
