SKOTEINO CAVE - 2009
Type of Operation
American School of Classical Studies at Athens
Skoteino cave. L. Tyree (ASCSA), A. Kanta (Herakleion Museum) and C. Davaras (Athens) continued work in 2009 towards the publication of Davaras’ 1962 excavation of the cave. Mapping of the cave by 3D laser scanning is now completed: the considerably different elevations within the cave and between the excavated areas make their topographic and geological relationships difficult to understand using traditional 2D data. The pottery study included a macroscopic re-examination of the fabrics, typology and chronology of the catalogued pithoi.
