heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MA in the Classical Archaeology and the Ancient History of Macedonia at the International Hellenic University. The subject matter is based on unpublished grave findings, owned since 1936 by the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, that come from the tumuli necropolis of Pateli (Agios Panteleimon) at Amyntaio in western Macedonia. Part of these objects were found during a small-scale excavation of two cist graves, conducted by Nikos Kotzias, and the rest were turned in to the Archaeological Service by Stefanos Kangas, resident of Pateli. The majority of these kterismata fall into the Early Iron Age period (about 1100-700 BC), and they demonstrate correlations with other sites within and outside Macedonia. This work also portrays an index of the Early Iron Age cemeteries of the regions adjacent to Pateli, and, moreover, an overview of the Pateli necropolis, in order to interconnect the material under study with a series of unpublished excavations conducted at the site. Hopefully, this research yielded some fruitful conclusions regarding the material culture and dating of the grave offerings, but reasonable questions arise concerning the period of use of the cemetery and its connection with the Vergina tumuli necropolis. Finally, a rare, for western Macedonia, assemblage of potters’ marks makes the material even more intriguing. The Early Iron Age or else Dark Age is a very challenging era to deal with as it “floats rather uncomfortably” between the clearly defined limits of the Prehistoric and Classical periods. The study of this era in Macedonia presents additional difficulties, in contrast to southern Greece, due to, on one hand, the insistence on a local ware tradition with various regional diversities, and on the other hand, the paucity of fully studied and published excavational data, specifically regarding western Macedonia. Beyond these concerns, what is of great importance is that, during this transitional period, the foundations for the creation of the historical times of Greece were gradually established.
