Almyropotamos

Almyropotamos

The area of Almyropotamos is one of Greece’s most important Paleolithic sites.

Hundreds of animal bones, teeth and fossils which paleontologists date back to 15 million years ago have been found literally piled in layers one over the other. The remains of giant mastodons, tortoises, bears, gazelles and dozens of other species found here are similar to the same types found at sites in Samos, and even as far away as China. Unfortunately, most of the finds are housed in the Museum of Paleontology in the Athenian neighbourhood of Goudi, as well as the University of Munich.
