Geographically, my PhD project focuses on Samos in the Aegean Sea (Greece) with its archaeological significant Sanctuary for Hera (or Heraion) situated on a coastal plain. Although recognised as an important place of worship and cultural centre in the Aegean region from circa 3200 BCE to 400 CE, little is known about environmental conditions, potential for land use and human-environment-interactions within this timeframe. Therefore, my methods include the analysis of sediment cores, soil samples and geophysical data to complement existing archaeological results for the coastal plain.

Keywords: Aegean Sea, Bronze Age, coastal plain, geoarchaeology, Heraion, Samos
