Artémis Amarysia.In search of the lost temple

A team of Greek-Swiss archaeologists has been working for 10 years to locate on the island of Evia one of the last great sanctuaries of ancient Greece still buried. The confirmation of its discovery came in 2017 with the reading of the name Artemis associated with a large sacred space used from the Bronze Age to the Roman imperial period.
