Damjan Donev
Campus Argestaeus: The Chronology, Extent and Organization of Settlement in the Survey Area

Abstract

This study is a continuation of the field report published in the previous issue of the journal Haemus (Donev, D. (2012) Campus Argestaeus: A Landscape Frozen in Time, 217-229, Haemus I.). After considering two methodological issues relevant to all surface artifact surveys, the author describes the distribution of the surface material by periods. Particular attention is given to the extent of the settlements, their inner structure and their locational preferences. In conclusion we point to possible directions for future research and explicate the difficulties and limitations in interpreting surface artifact scatters.
