Archaeological sites of Macedonia (the cities of the Kingdom)

The formation of cities in the Macedonian kingdom is a very important historical occurrence with dual significance. Firstly, it is an indication of the ultimate and most important organisation of the kingdom itself and secondly, it influences the lives of the Macedonian people and beyond. This must be stressed to students in order to be able to approach the relevant historical phenomena. The relevant archaeological material is abundant and needs to be interpreted and linked to history. Theoretical knowledge shall be accompanied by visits to the specific areas.
