    Academic activities

    P. Foucart puts into action a large part of the programme begun by his predecessor: exploratory travels in Greece and Asia Minor are instigated, and excavations are carried out at 18 sites in Boeotia, the Peloponnese (Mantinea, Nemea and Tegea), and Asia Minor. An epigrapher of distinction, he introduces a tradition: the collection and publication of Greek inscriptions, which remain one of the FSA's strengths.

The area attests to a long use from the EH to the Byzantine periods. A floor and EH pottery sherds are the only remains of the earlier phase. Late Geometric pottery sherds may indicate that the area was inhabited during this period too. Part of a Late Archaic building was excavated, consisting of rubble walls. Seven ditches, 2 cairns and 2 pits containing EH and Archaic pottery sherds are contemporary to this building. A stone paved area, 2 walls and 5 cairns are dated to the early Classical period. From the second half of the 5th c. B.C. the area was converted to a cemetery. A peribolos wall of rectangular stone blocks was excavated. Th
