The Eastern Korinthia Archaeological Survey: integrated methods for a dynamic landscape.


From 1997 to 2003, the Eastern Korinthia Archaeological Survey (EKAS) investigated a 350-[km.sup.2] region east of the ancient city of Corinth, focusing primarily on the northern Corinthian plain. EKAS developed an interdisciplinary methodology that emphasizes novel applications of geological science, computer-based knowledge systems, and strategies for fieldwork and collaboration among experts. In this article, the research philosophies and methods are presented and their application illustrated with results from the survey. The historical development of one settlement, Kromna in the northern Corinthian plain, is examined in detail to demonstrate the interpretive potential of data collected by these methods.
