Excavated and Surveyed Sites

Most of the archaeological team directors are being kept informed about the condition of the sites they were studying up until 2011. Due to their detailed knowledge, they are also the best experts for evaluating the degree, spatial extent and nature of the damage. Hereunder we present their evaluations. The table summarizes detailed information regarding sites, buildings and monuments, dig houses, museums and archaeological warehouses. A link directs users towards the interactive map.
