The seat of the municipality is the town Ptolemaida.[2]

Municipality

The municipality Eordaia was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following 5 former municipalities, that became municipal units:[2]

Province

The province of Eordaia (Greek: Επαρχία Εορδαίας) was one of the provinces of the Kozani Prefecture. Its territory corresponded with that of the current municipality Eordaia, and a few villages of the municipality Kozani.[3] It was abolished in 2006.

History

The history of Eordaia can be found stretching long before 2000 BCE when the first Greeks known as the Aeolians and Arcadians began to inhabit this area.[dubious ] Remnants of copper mines exploited from 2700 up until 1200 BCE indicate strongly that the Greeks inhabited Eordaia for thousands of years.[citation needed] Iron mines have also been exploited in the region.

Recent discoveries

Within a 50-year period, paleontologists and archaeologists have made many discoveries due to the industrial development of the Eordaian countryside. In particular, the skeletal fossils of a prehistoric mammoth, a prehistoric elephant, and Stone Age tools have all been found within the province of Eordea. These finds add to knowledge on the variety of animal species and human artifacts in this particular region of western Macedonia.[citation needed]
