Dr. Joanne Murphy is doing a field study, and running a field school, on the island of Kea. Follow this link for the official Kea Archaeological Research Survey webpage.
This project “Testing the Value of Survey Data: A 30-year perspective from Northwestern Kea, Greece” is the first of its type in Greece. She explains, “The general underlying assumption of surface archaeology is that the landscape recreated from survey data is an accurate picture of the ancient landscape that informs us about land use, population density, politics, and trade in antiquity. The veracity of the assumption has yet to be tested.”
Archaeological Field School in Kea (June 8 – July 6, 2024)
