Thesprotia Expedition – A Regional, Interdisciplinary Survey Project in Northwestern Greece

The Thesprotia Expedition is an interdisciplinary project that combines archaeology, geology, and history with the aim of writing the diachronic history of one part of Thesprotia in Epirus, northwestern Greece – specifically the Kokytos river basin – from prehistoric down to modern times.

The project, which is directed by Dr. Björn Forsén under the auspices of the Finnish Institute at Athens, was originally in 2003 scheduled to last for five years. With additional funding from the Academy of Finland field work has continued until 2010.
