Title:   Preliminary Report on the 2003 Excavation Season
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   Excavations in 2003 were carried out largely in the northwest corner of the Agora known as Section BZ. The area was divided into two parts: the north-south road and areas to the west, and east of the road.
After several years of exploring the Byzantine houses of the 10th century A.D. which overlay the area, the foundations were stripped away and substantial progress into the underlying Roman remains were made. Much of what was exposed dated from the 3rd to the 6th centuries A.D. The main topographical feature was the north-south street which divided the area in two parts with late Roman walls on both sides of the street. West of the road, remains of a bath built in the 3rd century A.D. were excavated. East of the road, further evidence of occupation in the area were discovered, as well as of activity by coroplasts.
A new area of excavation was opened up to the east (north part of Section ΒΗ) and medieval walls were revealed.
The work in the Eleusinon area was completed this season with the excavation of two wells.
