Therasia III. Archaeological research and landscape history of an island community.


Edited by:
Kostas Sbonias and Iris Tzachili

Therasia is a suitable field for the observation of small island communities, having preserved significant traces of a cultural landscape connected with the diachronic ekistic history of the island, the uses of land, and the perception and experience of the space by human communities on the past. These traces have been recorded in the context of the Island Cultures in a Diachronic Perspective: The Case of Therasia research project and the ongoing excavations on the island. This volume focusses on the geological, archaeological and historical research carried out on Therasia in order to gain an understanding of the history of the landscape in the longue duree, from prehistory to the 21st century. The research combines archaeological survey, geological and geophysical study and excavation methods, while the investigation of the available historical sources and archival research complete the wide range of sources, data and perspectives.
