The archaeological site of Lefkanti at Xeropoli located between Halkida and Eretria has helped shed light on life during the so called “dark ages” of Greece. Excavations confirm that the site was an important Bronze Age settlement dating back to 2100 BC and continued to support a permanent population until as late as 825 BC. A number of tombs and artefacts dating towards the end of this period have proved invaluable in helping archaeologists learn more about this misunderstood period within Greek history.
