The Ancient cities of Boeotia project

The Ancient Cities of Boeotia Project started in 1976 by John Bintliff and Anthony Snodgrass. Over the years hundreds of students have been trained in the arts of archaeological survey and thousands of kiloos of pottery have been collected and examined. Projectmembers and contributors come from universities and organisations from all over Europe, giving advise and lending their expertise to solving riddles and/or to look at the collected data. Not only the collected pottery is being studied, but architectural remains, geography, landscape and anthropology are also fields of interest. Together with the use of recent techniques, like GPS, GIS, GPR and resistivity survey, past cities in Boeotia are coming to life again.
