Abstract


This paper presents the methodological framework and the first results of a project launched in 2014 entitled Recapturing the Dynamics of the Early Byzantine Settlements in Crete: Old problems | New Interpretations through an Interdisciplinary Approach. Through an interdisciplinary approach, combining a careful reading of historical and archaeological evidence with the spatial analysis offered by the application of new technologies in archaeological research, the project highlights the developments of Cretan settlements from the fourth century to the early ninth century. In particular, we will examine the data categories and discuss how they are brought together for analysis in a Geographical Information System.
