The rescue excavation at the prehistoric mount of Servia beside the river Haliakmon aimed to discover its history and character before flooding in 1974 by a hydroelectric scheme. The first volume of the report on the joint Anglo-Hellenic project of 1971-73 includes the account of stratigraphy and chronology and of the large one and two storey houses of timber and clay. The tools, ornaments and other objects of stone, clay, shell and metal illustrate the raw materials used - stone from the river bed close by or sea shell from 50 km away - and the domestic activities within the settlement - food preparation, carpentry or weaving - which reflect the essential self sufficiency of these communities. Plan remains recovered illustrate agriculture and food production in the context of the interaction between man and his environment in this fertile valley.
