History

Most Important Archaeological Sites

Man made his first appearance on Evia and the nearby island of Skyros as early as the Palaeolithic Era. Primitive stone tools have been excavated in New Artaki, some kilometers away from Chalkis,the capital city of the island. Those first inhabitants of Evia are known by the name of Avandes (Abantes). Already in prehistoric times, from 1200 B.C. on, we can document a major wave of new settlers belonging to the Ionian Greek culture.
