    Introduction

    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.

    Funding and Acknowledgements:

    NVAP was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Geographic Society, the Institute for Aegean Prehistory, the Hetty Goldman Fund of the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology of Bryn Mawr College, the Faculty Research Fund of Bryn Mawr College, and generous donations from individuals.

    The project was awarded a permit for excavation and survey from the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, which was granted by the Ministry of Culture of Greece. Special thanks are owed to the former Director of Antiquities, Dr. Iannis Tzedakis, the successive Ephors of the Archaeological Service in Nauplion, Dr. Phani Pachiyianni and Dr. Elisavet Spathari.

    Professors Stephen G. Miller and William D.E. Coulson, successive Directors of the American School of Classical Studies strongly supported the project and were critical to its success.
