Excavations at ancient Eleon, located 15 km east of Thebes in central Greece, have revealed a center of vibrant activity throughout the Late Bronze Age, starting with a burial complex of the Late Helladic I period (ca. 1600 BCE) and continuing to significant settlement remains of the Late Helladic IIIC period (ca. 1100 BCE). Work has also revealed intriguing evidence for the site’s re-use in historical periods, when the construction of a massive polygonal wall redefined the site’s topography and function during the late Archaic period (ca. 500 BCE).
