Careful observation of the map of Palaeolithic Greece, as it was shaped in the late 1980s, led us to acknowledge that the region of Northern Greece, from the foot of Mount Pindos to the Evros river, was terra incognita, although there were indications of Palaeolithic habitation in this region as well as in the neighboring countries.

So a project was decided on which would investigate the Palaeolithic habitation in Eastern Macedonia, an area which had not yet supplied any evidence of human beings in the Palaeolithic period in spite of the wealth of finds from the Neolithic and Bronze Age.

The first results of the project were positive, although not sufficient enough for creating a complete picture of this habitation. Such a picture can only be completed by continuing the research and the detailed study of the available archaeological material.
