The Excavations at Ancient Halieis

This limited series reports on the findings of the important Archaic and early Classical Greek archeological site, Ancient Halieis. Unlike other ancient cities, with many layers of habitation, Halieis had a clearly defined life, from its founding at about 700 BCE to its abandonment some 400 years later. Although small, Halieis possessed all the features of a typical Greek polis--an acropolis, several sanctuaries, a stadium, a necropolis, a harbor, and substantial fortifications. It presents us with a typical city during the period when the Greeks were developing their unique form of political organization, secular and sacred architecture, and the classical tradition of art.
