Title: The Potenza Valley Survey: Preliminary Report on Field Campaign 2002
Author(s): VERMEULEN, Frank
Volume: 78 Date: 2003
This contribution presents the third report about the on-going survey project of Ghent University in the Adriatic valley of the River Potenza (Marches, Italy). The project investigates the settlement history of the valley, essentially between 1000 BC and AD 1000. In 2002 substantial results in the whole valley have been obtained with the help of remote sensing techniques, while the field surveys and study of surface finds have focussed on the protohistoric and Roman occupation of the coastal area. The article comprises also an introduction to geo-archaeological investigations and the use of an original GIS and presents some results concerning Stone Age finds.
