Thessalonica In 51 AD

A reconstruction of the Greek city in its New Testament days.


The Surrounding Area of Thessalonica in 51 AD: "Provincia Macedonia"

Information coming soon...

1: Benefits of the Location - Introduction (Site, Resources, Location, Climate)

2: The Site Itself (harbor, drop-off shoreline, defensible sloping land)

3: Nearby Resources (4 rivers, rich plains, forests, horses, mining, etc)

4: Centrally Located (provincial boundaries; via egnatia & other roads; other mac cities; axios river, thermaic & egnatian trade routes)

5: Climate (benefit of being closer to mediterranean & chalkidiki's med. climate; offset by the axios winds bringing the continental weather down)

6: The Effect of Macedonia's Geography on Their History

7: The Effect of Macedonia's Geography on The Events of Acts 17


Input from Anonymous Anonymous :

I think studying this field is a perfect passtime. There are many people (such as myself) who would like to know more about this area, but either we can't find enough information (most scientists refuse to study this area because there is another city atop it, and they believe it would be too hard) and\or we live too far away to do anything about it. I am proud that we have citizens such as yourself in our grand country.
