  • 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.
