Mission Statement

This website is an open knowledge base and communication platform for education and research regarding archaeological field-survey in the Mediterranean. This collaborative website is aimed at both students and scholars and provides in extensive background information on projects, researchers, theory, methods and practice of survey archaeology and related areas, such as computer applications in archaeology. In addition, the website is home of the ArchaeoSurveyor project.

We would like to invite you to register in order to be able to contribute to this site and/or to join discussions in our forums.


We hope to decrease distance between knowledge, research and education for archaeological field-survey, by:

  • Orderly presenting concepts, publications, researchers and projects
  • Structuring this information using innovative techniques, enabling a student/researcher to approach the information along several axes
  • Maintaining an open structure, enabling the wiki and forum to be a (inter-universitary) platform for discussion between students and researchers

For instructions and details, see the help page.

See this recent introduction in Tijdschift voor Mediterrane Archeologie for more information (Dutch).
