Archaeological Survey


    • Using a multidisciplinary approach, this project reconstructs human activity in this remote and rugged area from the time of the first arrivals ca. 3000 BC until the end of the Ottoman rule in AD 1900, as well as the human-landscape interactions in the broad environmental and altitudinal range. They also explore the relationships between coastal and inland settlements, along with possible connections between Sphakia and areas in the north.
