Magazia on Skyros - Overview

   Extensive cemetery of cist-graves dated to the early Iron Age (1000-600 B.C.).
   In the same area, at a short distance to the south, Mycenaean chamber tombs cut in the rock (dated to 1600-1100 B.C.) and graves of the Early Helladic period (3rd millenium B.C.) have also been discovered.
   Excavations in the area were carried out in 1930-37 by Ph. Stavropoulos and J. Papademetriou, and have been resumed by E. Sapouna-Sakellaraki.
