Metaponto Field Survey ARK

This database contains primary data from the archaeological field survey in the chora of Metaponto, Italy. Fieldwork was carried out from 1979 to 2008 by the Institute of Classical Archaeology (University of Texas at Austin) under the direction of Joseph Coleman Carter.

Findings and interpretation of the western half of the survey transect, ranging from the Bradano River to the Basento River, have been published in four volumes: Carter, J. C., and A. Prieto. 2011. The Chora of Metaponto 3: Archaeological Field Survey—Bradano to Basento. 4 vols. Austin: University of Texas Press.
