In the years 2001-2006, excavations were conducted at the site Maroulas, on the island of Kythnos. This site, dated at about 9400 years BP, in terms of taxonomy can be classified as "Aegean Mesolithic”, which refers to the tradition of Late Palaeolithic Epigravettien of the eastern part of the Mediterranean basin. This site differs from other previously known Mesolithic sites by: a) The presence of the circular stone structures and stone pavements, b) The presence of stone querns and grindstones what in turn suggests a greater role of plant food.
