The Nemea Valley Archaeological Project (NVAP) is a comprehensive study of human activity in a regional landscape in the Peloponnesos of Greece. NVAP combines archaeological survey with excavation of the prehistoric site of Tsoungiza and social anthropological study of modern settlement and landuse.
