Abstract

This paper deals with the reconstruction of coastal palaeogeographies in that area since the mid-Holocene. Sediments encountered in 51 vibracores were used to detect the distribution pattern of facies. Facies discrimination was based on sedimentological and micro- and macrofaunal analyses. Palaeobotanical, micromorphological and geophysical studies were accomplished to rebuild palaeoenvironmental settings. A geochronology was set up by means of 50 C 14-AMS-dates. Essential geoarchaeological results are that 1) an Early Helladic harbour, unknown until now, existed southeast of Trikardo on a lagoonal shore and that 2) Oiniadai's shipsheds were, in Classical-Hellenistic times, accessible from the sea via a lagoon
