Lakka Skoutara: A Partial Archive

Over the last 10 years or so, David Pettegrew, Tim Gregory, Lita Tzortzopoulou-Gregory, and I have been working to document a modern rural settlement in the southeastern Corinthia. The site is called Lakka Skoutara and we have presented the preliminary results of our work in a few conference papers over the past few years, I’ve presented some photographs and general discussions in this blog, and Lita-Tzortzopoulou published a very brief summary of our work in “The Archaeology of Modern Greece” in E. Athanassopoulos and L. Wandsnider eds. Mediterranean Archaeological Landscapes: current issues. (Philadelphia 2004).

Part of the basis for our study is a significant archive of photographs. I’ve made a significant number of these available using Omeka on a companion site to this blog called Mediterranean Archaeology at the University of North Dakota. David Pettegrew and I took these photos over a 9 year period from 2001-2009. So far, I’ve uploaded and begun to annotate with metadata photos taken in 2002, 2004, and 2009.


To find the photos on my Omeka site, click on Browse Collections and then Lakka Skoutara. You can look at the various photos of individual houses by their tags: House 2, House 3, House 4, House 5, House 6, House 7, House 9, House 10, House 11, House 13 , House 14, House 16, House 17. Or you can go to advanced search (in the upper right hand corner) and create more complex searches. The simple search is nearly worthless. Once you find a photo in which you are interested, you can save the citation into your Zotero database.

At present the houses do not have a significant amount of metadata associated with each house, but that is coming soon. Moreover, we do not have many contextualizing documents associated with these houses. But we will have a few plans posted soon and a map of the site as well as some photos taken in 2001 and some more robust descriptions of the houses and the area. In other words, this is a work in progress, but the item numbers for each photograph will remain stable.
