Work at Polis

One of the projects for the summer was helping with the documentation and analysis of the remains of a basilica at the site of Polis Chrysochous. Polis, known in antiquity at various times as Marion and Arsinoe, is today a small village that caters mainly to tourists. Since 1983 a Princeton archaeological project, under the guidance of Dr. William Childs, has conducted an investigation of the area that has uncovered many different chronological elements of the site, including the Late Roman basilica known by the designation as E.F2.

When dealing with artifacts and notebooks, it is easy to forget what the remains on the ground look like, and so Bill was kind enough to give a brief video tour of the site. He also has some nice maps and satellite imagery of the basilica up on his blog.
