Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the Locris region, which covers the southern part of Phthiotis. Its main geographical features are the mountain ranges, particularly Callidromus in the northwest, its extension Chlomon to the south and Mt. Cnemis in the east. To the north, the region opens up towards the alluvial plain of the Spercheius River while in the east it meets the coastline of the north Euboean and Malian Gulfs. The part of Locris called Epicnemidia includes the northern part of the region, whose natural borders are Thermopylae in the north, Cnemis to the south and west, and Mt. Callidromus, which separates it from ancient Opuntian Locris, northeast Phocis and Doris. Epicnemidian Locris was first settled in the Neolithic period. Preliminary reports and studies on Neolithic and Bronze Age assemblages have been conducted in relation to systematic excavation at the sites in the southeast of the area.

Keywords: Bronze Age; Epicnemidia; Locris region; Neolithic period
