During the summer campaign of 2012, five test trenches were excavated at the site of Lithakia-Kamaroti on the island of Zakynthos, Greece. This site had been discovered during previous campaigns of the Zakynthos Archaeology Project. The excavations show that the archaeological remains near the top of the hill are severely destroyed due to rearrangements of the landscape. Nevertheless, the remains of a Late Bronze Age house were excavated. This house confirmed the impression that a Mycenaean site of some importance is located at Lithakia-Kamaroti. In addition, there were indications for agricultural use of the site in the Classical or Hellenistic period.
