Phaistos. M. Benzi (SAIA/Pisa) reports on a new project begun in 2007. This consists of a survey of the hill surrounding Phaistos where many sites have been discovered through non-systematic exploration in recent decades. The focus of this year’s work was identification, GIS-referencing and information gathering for sites in the area already known or suggested from the archives of the ΚΓ' ΕΠΚΑ and the SAIA. PH ceramics and structures were located on the hill of Marathoviglia Petrokefali.
Field survey was accompanied by the recording of materials originating from Italian excavation in locations around the palace, in part kept in the Stratigraphical Museum of Phaistos.
