Parallel projects
Within the framework of the view of the archaeological process as a comprehensive event, parallel projects supplement the excavation programme. These aim on the one hand to collect additional data which will help in the understanding of both the prehistoric and the modern settlement and, on the other hand, at the integration of the archaeological process with the local community.
Extension of research
A series of projects such as experimental archaeological efforts, an investigation of the locality, and ethnographic documentation aim at enlarging the scope of the research from the prehistoric period to the recent history of the village. The participation of the inhabitants in this is important, since with their knowledge of both the area and traditional farming life they can significantly help in the understanding of unknown aspects of daily life in the countryside, which would otherwise still be indeterminable.
Extension of knowledge
Another series of educational programmes is being organised to make the entirety of the knowledge and experiences acquired during the archaeological study approachable for all those interested in the site and its history, and in the research methods of the past. Specialist museum educators, teachers and trainers worked both before and during the TEMPER programme for the organisation and undertaking of educational programmes for different groups of the public.
A comprehensive event
The projects above constitute the extension of the archaeological research beyond the narrow limits of the excavation and make the archaeological area part of the daily activities of the village. With the running of the archaeological park these activities will be incorporated with a view to the even more active participation of the local community and the public.
