Archaeological site turned into a garbage pit


Athens, Greece (GR)
The square, which is known as Platia Ethniki Andistassis (National Resistance) or more popularly Kotzia Square until recently was a total disaster. When they were building a parking lot they discovered antiquities. The archaeologists rushed in, excavated it and then left it for years as a giant fenced in pit for people to throw their garbage in.
