When on Google Earth 92

Since I was the first to track down Matt's WOGE 91, and identify it as Mount Ipf, a hillfort near Bopfingen, Germany, I won the right to set you the challenge below.


Where and when on Google earth is this site?


Here are the rules

Q: What is When on Google Earth? A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it? A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins? A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get? A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

Be the first to correctly identify the site above and its major period of occupation in the comments below and you can host your own!

I have no idea... just wanted to mention that I wrote down some speculative general thoughts on archaic housing at my blog.

Well, it's Dimini in Thessaly, Greece, near (or should I say in by now) Volos. Late Neolithic (and later), 4900-4500 BC.
