About Archaeology in Samos

Samos is a treasure trove of exciting ancient finds for over 35 years, the Greek Archaeological Society has been carrying out digs in the region of the lower city of ancient Samos (which is about as large as the current size of Pythagoreio today), and they are continuing to do so. The dramatic development that has been taking place on the island due to tourism has led to the unearthing of the largest part of the ancient past via the Agora, public buildings, road networks and temples. There is a great deal to be explored here, with impressive finds such as the Heraion temple (or Temple of Hera), which is the largest Greek temple ever built, and the 4.8m high statue of the Kouros, as well as well organized and information-packed museums.
