Monitoring the impact of coastal erosion on archaeological sites: the Cyprus Ancient Shoreline Project

  • Georgia Marina Andreou (a1)
Abstract

Coastal erosion of archaeological sites has long been a problem for archaeologists seeking to understand maritime interactions in the past. A new model, using ArcGIS to collate various sources of data relating to processes of erosion over time along the south coast of Cyprus, is showcased here, with the hope that it can be expanded and adapted for use elsewhere in prioritising sites according to rates of destruction.
