Description

Many ancient Greek fortifications are known but there has been little excavation within them. This account of survey and excavation within the fort at Phylla, Vrachos in central Euboea starts to fill a significant gap. The garrison was housed in a purpose built 20 room barrack building and excavation shows that this, with the associated redevelopment of the fort, belongs to a brief occupation phase between the Athenian defeat of Chalk is in 507 BC and the Persian invasion of 490 BC. A full presentation of the excavation and architecture provide the basis for detailed examination of the evidence for garrison life in the late archaic period. A final chapter brings out the historical significance of the site.
