Invaluable Macedonian artifacts discovered in Florina

Return |

During a long-running excavation at the archaeological site of Achlada, Florina more than 200 graves containing a number of relics used in burials were found. The graves span a period of more than a thousand years, from the Ancient Macedonian Empire to the Byzantine Empire.

Some of the most striking discoveries include a well preserved golden death mask, a golden ring, a silver double fork, parts of steel swords, a bronze boiler and a rearward vessel.

One of the most impressive graves is the one containing a somewhat preserved ancient Greek warrior, alongside his battle gear.

This discovery will surely continue highlighting the historical and archaeological importance of this site, while at the same time making Florina an essential place to visit in order to fully comprehend the vast diversity and timelessness of Greek culture.
