During the 2005 season, our intensive, systematic survey followed procedures standard all over the Mediterranean world - a team of 5 or 6, spaced at fairly close intervals, line-walking tracts accurately pinpointed by GPS, counting all observed cultural material and collecting diagnostic peices and other samples. In all, we covered a little over 4 sq. km. in our first season in 3 different parts of the Shaghat Valley.
During the 2006 season, because it was earlier in the year, and the crops had not yet been harvested, the survey team turned its attention to extensive survey, which had we had begun in 2005 briefly. The aim of the extensive work of 2006 was to expand the coverage of our project area and the number of known, documented sites and burials.
