Geophysical Survey of Roman Knossos

"My research is built on big historical questions that cut across landscapes – what was the impact of Rome on Crete? What was the place of the mythic past in Roman Knossos? How can historic landscapes be protected in the contemporary world? These questions and the landscape of a vanished city are approached through the meticulous investigation of discrete parcels of land. 30m by 30m grids are draped on the Cretan countryside, and we walk each metre of these squares carrying a gradiometer in order to peer beneath the surface, guided by red pegs and survey tapes, walking on history."
