Plakias, Palaeolithic finds

A recent and ongoing excavation by the American School of Archaeology at Athens, has discovered stone age tools above Plakias, which ‘prove’ the arrival (and probable departure too), of the world’s first sea-farers. Dated back a minimum of 130,000 years, and as long ago as 700,000 years, this is a quite incredible find. There won’t be a lot to see if you plan on visiting, but the sheer importance of this find, may send a shiver down your spine.
