2014-2017’s Western Argolid Regional Project was a synergasia between the Hellenic Ministry of culture and the CIG, co-directed by Dimitri Nakassis (MoCA – GDACH: Ephorate of Antiquities of the Argolid), Scott Gallimore (Wilfrid Laurier University) and Sarah James (University of Colorado Boulder). WARP aimed to understand human occupation and activity in the hinterland of Argos in all periods of Greek prehistory and history, from the Neolithic to the present. They looked at the settlement history of Argos, traced the historical dynamics of power and resistance in the landscape of the western Argolid, and attempted to connect the micro-regions of the western Argolid to each other and to neighboring valleys in the northeastern Peloponnese. This was done through several seasons of survey in the field, and a virtual study season in 2021 due to the pandemic.
