Sikyon Survey Project


The Sikyon survey project is a multidisciplinary research program to study the human presence and activity on the plateau of ancient Sikyon, a city in northeastern Peloponnese between Corinth and Achaia. The project was begun in the summer of 2004 by the University of Thessaly in collaboration with  the University of York (UK), the Institute of Mediterranean Studies at FORTH and the 37th Ephoreia of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. The current research follows on, and is integrally linked with, an extensive survey conducted between 1996 and 2002 in the ca. 360 km2 territory of the ancient city (Lolos, forthcoming).

York staff and students have participated in the project since 2004, and currently department members Ben Gourley and Michael Charno are working to bring geophysical and surface collection surveys to publication.
