The Agro Pontino Archaeological Survey

Project description

Agro Pontino

The Agro Pontino Archaeological Survey Contents The Agro Pontino archaeological survey was conducted from 1979 to 1989 by the University of Amsterdam, joined by the University of Leiden in 1986 and 1988. Seven survey campaigns took place. The goals of the survey were: (1) to describe the distribution of archaeological surface materials as accurately as possible; (2) to place these materials, ranging from the Middle Palaeolithic to the Post-Roman period, in a rough chronological framework; and (3) to determine for each prehistoric period the factors contributing to the distribution observed. In addition, there was an emphasis on the changing prehistoric landscape and landuse.
