Understanding Cultural Landscapes Through Field-Based Learning and Research

Anastasia Dakouri-Hild, Associate Professor (Aegean and Near Eastern Archaeology)

The students will form an essential part of KASP’s pedestrian field team during the first campaign, along with students from other universities, the co-directors and specialist scholars (see below ‘global mission’). KASP is a 3-year survey project (2019-2021) that intends to systematically explore a venerable landscape near Marathon -the ancient site of Aphidna, one of Athens’ most historic districts celebrated in its foundational myths and connected to Theseus himself. KASP aims to systematize information about the area and non-destructively augment it through remote sensing, geophysics, geological, geomorphological analysis, and pedestrian survey.
