Issue: Vol 20 No. 2 (2007)
Journal: Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology
The few examples of archaeological surface survey conducted in ancient urban centers in Greece and the Mediterranean have employed a variety of methods and yielded results of disproportionate breadth and resolution. The Sikyon Survey Project is a hyper-intensive survey that aims to set a standard for addressing the archaeology of a sizable Mediterranean town center. The efficacy of the proposed methodology is highlighted by preliminary results from the first three years of the survey (2004–2006).
