Urban Spaces and Social Realities in the Peloponnese (700-100 BCE)

An article on the development of ancient Peloponnesian urbanization based on a synthesis of existing fieldwork and digital mapping.

This research project explores how the relationships between Greek urban forms and sociocultural and political realities shaped the worlds in which people lived in the Peloponnese (Southern Greece) from 700-100 BCE. Its methodological approach moves beyond conventional procedures by forming an interdisciplinary rapport between Archaeology and novel technologies. Notably, research incorporates a vast collection of new geophysical data from fieldwork recently completed at three Classical period settlements in the Peloponnese (Elis, Heraia, and Mantinea). This original material gives a comprehensive overview of the spatial characteristics of these Greek cities on an impressive scale, and, along with contextual evidence from excavations, field survey, and historical sources, it forms the basis for a broader survey of the diverse urban landscapes of the Peloponnese.
