Photographer's Note

Hi friends.
Today I come again with some objects-vases from the small presentation with finds of the excavations on the prehistoric lakeside settlement in Dispilio-Kastoria.

for some more information
Economy and Technology
The field, economy and technology, is established by answering the following questions about everyday life in a prehistoric settlement. The answers will also have a historical significance: (a) what did the prehistoric lake dwellers need to produce? (b) How did they produce it? And (c) for whom was it produced? It will be seen that we are referring to those activities which result from and are supported by man’s direct conscious relationship with nature. This relationship led prehistoric man to observe closely the way his environment provided resources so that he could develop his own productive potential, making appropriate decisions in his farming and cattle-reaching activities. Our main effort is to identify these processes in the archeological material which has been brought to light by the excavations.
As the excavations are still in their early stages we have not yet been able to gather information about every production activity employed by the prehistoric inhabitants of Dispilio.
But we can claim that the prehistoric inhabitants exploited the full range of food recourses offered by their environment. We make this claim on the basis of the excavated material brought to light so far; the tools; the structural evidence; the quantity and variety of animal bones; and the carbonized fruit and so on.
The statistical evidence does not identify how much of this variety of diet was the result of barter with neighbours or passers by, and how much was cultivated, gathered, hunted or fished for by the Dispilio people themselves.
The archeological finds do however suggest that all the inhabitants’ activities – food production, exchange, cattle rearing, hunting and fishing – prospered.

The text above I have from the book I found their in this small and extempore museum and it is written by professor. George Hourmouziades.

On WS you can see some other pottery objects.

Any comments are welcome.
