Simoni H., Papagiannopoulos K., Tsiakiris R., & Stara K. 2021. Local resource management imprinted in the landscape: convergent evolution in two greek mountain-plains during the last five centuries. in Bartelheim, Martin, Leonardo García Sanjuán, and Roland Hardenberg (eds) "Human-Made Environments. The Development of Landscapes as ResourceAssemblages."(pp. 53-73).
The Greek landscape is adorned with a dynamic relief ranging from gently undulating to rugged slopes of the high mountain zone, only a few kilometres from the coast. Especially in limestone substratum, numerous mountain-plains have been formed within the mountains. Since Antiquity, they have functioned as media of abundant and diverse natural as we...
Following the Fourth Crusade, one of the Frankish states that were established in former Byzantine territories was the Principality of Morea, in the Peloponnese. A strict hierarchy consisting of the prince, the barons, and the fief-knights quickly implemented a feudal system and imposed it on the locals; towers were erected and settlements were rel...
H. Simoni, “Ground Truthing and Remotely Sensed Data for Interpreting the Archaeological Potential of Modern Cities: The Case-Study of Patras, Greece,” in Archaeology in the City: Proceedings of the International Workshop, Amsterdam 16-17 October 2019, eds. G.L.M. Burgers, L. Cicala, G. Iliano, and Μ. Quagliuolo (Naples: Naus Editoria, 2020), 63-76
The archaeological potential of Patras is explored following a dual approach. First, excavation data from construction sites that contain or do not contain archaeological finds is used to implement a predictive model of underlying antiquities and their minimum expected depth of discovery within the City Plan. Its predictive value is tested in the l...
In this paper the interactions among the city of Patras, the University of Patras and its temporary international students are examined with the use of cartographic tools such as GIS, cartograms and mental mapping. Distribution maps of the Erasmus international agreements of the university suggest that the cultural profile of the city influences th...
Due to tectonic and erosional activities in recent geological years, Greek landscape is adorned with a dynamic relief ranging from gently undulating to rugged slopes of the high mountain zone, only few kilometres far from the coast. Especially in limestone substratum, numerous upland plateaus (named “polje” if small) have been formed between the mo...
What happens if Local History issues are integrated with the methodology and datasets of Landscape Archaeology? How can Local History promote the landscape history of a region? How can archaeological research be improved by establishing closer contacts between researchers and locals? This paper attempts to answer these questions by presenting two c...
Local History examines the history of a relatively small geographical area, the boundaries of which are based on particular characteristics of its landscape, natural and/or cultural, and is mostly practised by amateur historians who intend to write a book about their place of origin or residence without being committed to following strict research...
The authors examine the relationship between the agricultural use of Karstic dolinas and demography in the past.Conclusions are based on the results of the archaeological survey of 19 dolinas in 1995. Archaeological and historical data speak for the most intensive use of dolinas in 2 clearly distinguished periods - later prehistory (1st mil. BC) an...
