Research project: Ave Valley survey project - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

The aim of the survey is to investigate the Iron Age and Roman periods in the Ave valley in the Minho region of northern Portugal, through the application of surface survey techniques. Initial work utilised the field walking methods used in the Ager Tarraconensis survey with the aim of collecting comparable data.

At a later stage more detailed studies of a representative selection of sites was undertaken through the use of geophysical and geochemical techniques. Fieldwork was carried out in four seasons between 1994 and 1997.
