Abstract :
This article summarizes the work undertaken by an international team at the ancient sites of Koroneia, Hyettos, Thespiai, Askra, Haliartos and Tanagra and in their countrysides, during the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons. The problems with defining urban infrastructure and boundaries at Koroneia are tied to the eventual virtual reality reconstruction of the ancient city at its Hellenistic peak, while geomorphic research has been measuring the effect of settlement on the local landscape around the town. Work at ancient Askra, Haliartos and Thespiai has been carried out in connection with publication of older survey programmes, while continuing geophysical tests outside of the walls of Tanagra city are ongoing to discover the limits of the pre-Roman and much larger town plan.
