Archaeological Site of Prehistoric Myrina
In the same place as the modern capital of Lemnos, the ruins of prehistoric Myrina are located. Today, the visiting archaeological site is located in the area of Romanikos Gialos, near the beach of Risha Nera, which is also considered to be the port of that city.
Archaeological finds place Prehistoric Myrina in the middle of the 4th millennium BC, that is to say during the Late Neolithic period, and it is estimated that it stretched from the northern part of the current city (the Hill of the Officers' Club and the Estate of the Metropolis), to the low hill near the sea. During the Early Bronze Age, the settlement grows even more and according to the calculations it has a population of about 3,500 inhabitants.
At least nine buildings of prehistoric Myrina have been excavated, including a ceramic workshop. These are spacious houses, rectangular, with seaweed and mud roofs. They have two or three rooms and an entrance from the east due to the winds blowing in the area, while in some of them there are storages and an independent galley, which is a kind of megaron of prehistoric Myrina. Numerous finds, objects of everyday life, fruit storage jars, tools, and even games were discovered by the archaeological excavation and exhibited at the Archaeological Museum.
The edge of prehistoric Myrina is located alongside Poliochni, the important urban prehistoric center of Lemnos.
