Ancient Aliki

By jujupops
Good Afternoon EPZ

Hope you are all well and are enjoying the run up to Christmas!

Thank you for the votes and comments on my last upload, and a massive thank you to Peter (ddolfelin) for his very valuable UA (PM sent).

My photos today come from the beautiful Greek Island of Thassos (we visited there in 2016) a little history below.

The prosperity of Aliki coincides with the simultaneous mining of marble, which lasted from 6th century BC to 7th Century AD. The area would have been bustling with life, and there was a huge work site, which was suddenly abandoned, probably due to one of the the major earthquakes in 365 AD or 1509 AD. You can still see the quarry site, which has partially collapsed into the sea (V6).

I hope you like them and thank you for taking the time to look Grin

Have a great weekend all

Julie x

Fine set recording this historic industrial site: and interesting narrative too which makes the set so much more fascinating.
Have to admit I have never heard of this place although the island's name does ring a bell.

An excellent set of images, Julie and a very informative narrative.
I wish the weather here was a warm and sunny as you experienced when these shots were taken!!
