Our Story Trip

The story begins when in the Frachthi cave of Argolida the archeological hoe brought to light obsidian debris, a volcanic glass-like material used by the man of the 9th millennium BC. for the manufacturing of tools and weapons. This rock turned out to be coming from Milos Cycladic island! A discovery that marks the emergence of navigation in the Aegean and becomes the occasion for an archaeological debate over the places where the sailors of the time originated from.
