Abstract

Excavations in 1991 and 1992 partially uncovered the remains of the late medieval village that overlies the ruins of ancient Panakton. Dated to the 14th and early 15th century, the settlement was built and occupied at a time in which central Greece was ruled by competing Western powers; both the identity of the residents and the medieval name of the village remain open questions. This report presents the domestic structures excavated to date, as well as the ceramics, coins, and tools associated with rural life and the agrarian economy. The report also discusses the village's central church, its carved and painted decoration, and the burials that surrounded it.
