"Only a small part of a city as large as Troia can be investigated by means of excavation. Even after 132 years of archaeology at Troia less than five per cent of the total area has been excavated. Consequently it is necessary, and makes good sense, to accompany excavation with other methods of field exploration. Since the 2002 excavation season but intensively only from 2003, the city area of Troia has been explored by a further method--by means of a systematic survey." Korfmann 2004 p.9
