South of Aliakmonas river is Aigai Macedonians’ first capital city, whose name means “the place with many goats”. In 1977 took place one of the most important archaeological discoveries of all time. The city of the ancient Aigai, the first capital of the Macedonian, came to light. The wealth of the findings is incalculable .So, as a result that their territory Macedonian kings, the place of Philip and Alexander, of Eurydice and the Olympics, is declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 World Heritage.
In the middle of the 7th c. e.g. Aigai becomes the cradle of the Temenids, the dynasty which will reign for three and a half centuries in Macedonia and humanity will get to know Phillipos II and Alexander the Great. Therefore, Aigai is the start point that will change the history of Greece and the world.
Pella, a small town on the shores of Thermaikos Gulf, has become the capital Macedonia at the end of the 5th c. e.g. . It became the most important political, economic and cultural center of all Greece. The choice of location of the new capital was probably of the desicion by King Archelaus mainly for political and economic reasons abd due to the fertility of the location. It was close to the new territories that had been annexed to the Macedonian kingdom.
But most of all , it was coastal, providing easy access to all directions. That helped both the development of trade as well as the expansionist policy of the Macedonian kings. The key point of the city’s economy has been the large market (the largest square market of the ancient of the Greek world), with the production laboratories and the shops of sale of ceramic products, metal objects, but also edible products channeled to the surrounding areas.
The residential part of the city was around the market. Its road construction of Ancient Pella was very contemporary for those years: building blocks, which defined by roads intersecting vertical, well-studied systems water supply and sewerage! Its inhabitants could could be proud to have lived in a city- ahead of its time. The two-storey private houses with peristyles reflect the wealth and prosperity of the ancient inhabitants of Pella. The reference point is the mosaic floors with the mythological representations exhibited in the new Archaeological Museum of Pella, such as its capture Eleni, the Amazon War, the hunt for a deer!
