Excavation at the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age site of Servia in the Haliakmon Valley in Western Macedonia, was conducted by Aikaterina Rhomiopoulou and Cressida Ridley between 1971 and 1973 as a rescue project in advance of flooding by a Hydro-Electric scheme. It remains the only major excavated site of the MN period north of Thessaly.

CRESSIDA RIDLEY

The death at the age of 81 in June 1998 of Cressida Ridley, who initiated the project in 1971, has made it harder for us to complete the publication from her prolific notes but her enthusiasm has inspired us to continue.
