Touba – Agios Mamas

Touba - Agios Mamas

Touba was inhabited by the end of the Neolithic period till the Iron Era in consecutive layers. It is about one of the most important prehistoric positions in Halkidiki as far as the duration of inhabitancy and magnitude are concerned.

At the west of Touba an organized cemetery was found of the Early Cooper Era, the oldest cemetery ever found in Macedonia.

It was excavated with small exploratory cuts in 1928 by the English archeologist W.A Heurtley, while in 1993 a new excavation began by the German Archeological School, under the supervision of Dr. B. Haensel.

The new excavation, which is now in course, has already brought to light very interesting finds of the prehistoric architecture and pottery.

The cemetery was explored in 1992 by the XVI Tax Service of Culture and Antiquities.
