This talk discusses the branch of archaeology known as “intensive survey,” in which teams of archaeologists systematically walk across a landscape, collecting artifacts and recording features in order to glean a holistic and diachronic picture of a region. Examples are drawn from the speaker’s fieldwork in Greece—around the Panhellenic sanctuary of Zeus at Nemea, and in the Mazi Plain, on the northern reaches of Athens’ territory—during which he has engaged in a variety of digital methods for studying and representing past landscapes.
