The Helleno-Dutch surveys conducted in the plains of Almyros and Sourpi, around ancient Halos, since
1990, have revealed a large number of archaeological sites of all periods. These include small rural sites, presumably farmsteads, of the Classical and/or Hellenistic period of the kind also found in other surveys in Greece, for example in Laconia, Methana and Boeotia (where I have worked on sites from around Tanagra).
In the paper I try to show that the pottery assemblages of Halos and Tanagra seem closely comparable to the more general Greek pattern, and indeed strongly suggest they are inhabited farmsteads. Interestingly, a detailed look starting from the author’s work at Halos and Tanagra indicates that the ceramic assemblages found in such sites show a high degree of uniformity, suggesting that farm life in different areas of Greece may have been quite similar.
