Abstract
Memory is inscribed in archaeological landscapes and this integration could be approached through the surface finds of an excavation. The identities of the archaeologists, the inhabitants of modern Dispilio, the visitors of the site and their individual and public memory/memories are combined in order to realize how social memory is constructed in a border archaeological site, like Dispilio. Original texts of the finders and the excavators of the site, newspaper articles, Dispilio visitor’s book, photographs of the 60’s and 70’s, official documents of the local authorities, together with surface finds like a number of bullets from the Greek civil war (1946-1949), a Christian amulet, a sickle, small plastic toys, a medal etc. are the sources to accomplish the object.
