History made of bronze…
Thermi it’s a beautiful village around ten kilometers from the town of Mytilene.
During the Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC), the early people of Lesvos, developed an advanced culture molded with fire and metal.
On a sea route that joined the North and South Aegean and the West with East, they were part of a broad cultural horizon and yet maintained their own character.
They had experienced movements of populations, conquests and invasions.
Smaller or bigger ships carried goods and commodities, new ideas and technology on their way for a long time. The existing world was “brought” to them before they needed to explore it.
In 1929, the archaeologist Winifred Lamb, identified and first excavated the traces of the prehistoric population of Thermi. Still today, it remains the most widely researched site of that period on the island.
Ruins of evolving settlements with urban characteristics on a small fertile peninsula gazing at the coast of neighboring Troy, reveal well – hidden stories “behind the walls”.
The everyday struggles of people living in a prehistoric well – organized community, their religion, architecture, art, tools, dietary habits, pets, funeral rituals, “speak” of how different people were five thousand years ago….or were they?
