23 January 2014
A 5-year plan to carry out a survey around the site of Ayios Vasilios has been approved by the Netherlands Institute at Athens and submitted for approval to the Greek Ministry of Culture. The main aims of the survey is to record all traces of human habitation and use of the area surrounding the site, to reconstruct shifts in occupation and to establish the extent of the Mycenaean town. The survey will include systematic field-walking and collection of surface finds, while geophysical prospection and geomorphological investigation will be carried out if the necessary subsidies are obtained. The project will be directed by Sofia Voutsaki and Adamantia Vasilogamvrou, while Corien Wiersma will act as Field Director.
