Regional and site-oriented field survey. A territory of 750 sq km was explored. Twelve teams composed by one leader and two or more students walked through all accessible fields in the survey area to identify archaeological sites corresponding to surface concentrations of archaeological material and ancient structures/ruins. In total 930 archaeological sites were recorded, plotted on topographic maps in GIS, and described in a relational database.

Rural organization, settlement patterns, land use strategies and landscape evolution from protohistory until late antiquity. The aim of this project was to register all archaeological surface evidence (i.e. archaeological sites) and create distribution maps useful to both topographic research and for the needs of cultural resource management (spatial planning).
