The Khania Archaeological Survey Project focused on the environmental and cultural prehistory of the hinterland of the Bronze Age town at Khania. It aimed to reconstruct the local settlement system of Khania through the total surface survey of the area, and to compare the system to those defined at Pylos and Knossos.
What characterized the settlement system that supported the economic center at Khania? How does it compare to those that existed in Messenia and central Crete? What was the environment like in Bronze Age Crete?
