This publication appears thirty years after Nea Nikomedeia was excavated. The Early Neolithic site in Macedonia excited great interest in the 1960s because of its crucial importance in understanding the spread of the Neolithic. Also Robert Rodden, the excavator, pioneered the use of faunal and botanical analysis. This volume is the first of the series and covers the stratigraphy, architecture and ceramic finds from the site. The pottery assemblage consisted mainly of cooking vessels, while the structures are mainly small and square, wattle and daub (with possibly chaff mixed in) and reeds on the roof.
