Recent rescue excavations conducting by the Greek Archaeological Service at the historical center of Thessaloniki, Greece, due to the construction of Metro, revealed significant evidence of the city’s urban life at 6th – 9th century: the monumental Gate placed at the crossroad of the marble paved avenue (ca. 76 m in length), framed by public buildings, with the road leading to the harbor. These extraordinary finds constitute a unique evidence of the social, commercial, and everyday life in early byzantine Thessaloniki. The decision by the State of removing this rare piece of world heritage at an ex-army camp undermines the essence of the unmovable archaeological monument according to the Greek and International Law. Consider what will be the Eifel Tower or the Big Ben removed from their original place? Please sign up and vote in order to save this irreplaceable monument. There are technical solutions to preserve and place it straight to heart of Thessaloniki’s modern life.
