The archaeology of the medieval towers in Mount Athos. An attempt of archaeological research.

The present study is focused on the archaeology of the medieval deserted towers in Mount Athos. Besides the towers included in the monastery precinct that protect the arsanas (little harbor) or the towers of the distinct fortification, the deserted towers controlled the inner paths and the sea, preventing the attacks of the pirates. Only three monasteries had a compound defense system: the precinct of the monastery, a fortification on the shore, a fortified harbor and an upper side tower, unprotected by a precinct.

Keywords: Mount Athos, tower, fortification, archaeology, medieval, culture.
