This project examines the nature and extent of settlement and land use within the region, and the environmental and social conditions which altered settlement patterns concentrating on the time periods from the Neolithic through the Late Mycenean. The researchers developed and tested survey techniques and employed some excavation to help determine if the artifact noise or scatter frequently found was a result of human social and economic links between settlements, or if it is due to geomorphic depositions.
-How settlement and land use were affected by external areas both local and distant
-To examine the long-term effects of human activity on the landscape and propose explanations for these patterns
-To establish distributions of artifacts of particular dates within the survey area
