Athens – Kerameikos – General Photos

Kerameikos was a district of Athens which took its name from the pottery makers who lived there. The Latin name for the district was Ceramicus, which is where the English word for ceramics comes from. The site is now all part of a museum complex and is part of the museum ticket which I purchased a few days ago.

There’s a lot at this site, so that’ll be several ‘fascinating’ posts from me about it. It includes an internationally important cemetery, former roads, walls, gatehouses and many buildings.

To start with, here are some photos across the general site.
