Keros Island Survey 2012-2013
The aims for the surveys in this project included: 1. A focus on the creation of a new geological map and cross-sections of the island, and the recording of geomorphological features, soil types and land-use practices (Geophysical survey). The island was divided into 1584 one-hectare tracts. From here just under half tracts were walked and in a few specific areas an intensive sampling methodology was adopted. 2. To establish a reliable toponymy, obtain information on land use, and document the material culture and architectural remains abandoned during the last century and finally, a systematic search was made for looted Early Cycladic cemeteries, recording cavities and structures, and relating them to finds from the intensive survey. Intensive collection in the second survey called for focus on the â€˜polygonsâ€™ and the diachronic nature of this survey and equal emphasis on the finds all periods recovered offered as a principal result a detailed record of the extent to which southeast Naxos was occupied from the Early Bronze Age to the present.
Active from 2012 to 2013.
