of the Middle Helladic (2000 - 1600 B.C.) - Late Helladic (1600 - 1100 B.C.) period
supported in their circumference by a stone socle covered burials in pits and
cist graves covered by slabs. The group is unique in Phthiotis and marks the road
the burial habit for using tumuli entered Thesaly via South Greece during the
Late Helladic period.
Clandestine digging was the motive for excavations in 1986. The Classical
cemetry comprising 80 tombs was excavated and buried in 1990. Two Mycenaean tumuli
nearby are visible. A part of them is being excavated. Cists tombs have been restored
and the tumuli have been cleaned.
The ruins of a 4th century BC fortification wall are
identified with the ancient city of Andron. The caves on the northeast slopes
of the hill are associated to the cult of the goddess Demeter.
