The Antikythera Survey Project was a synergasia between the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and the Canadian Institute, co-directed by Aris Tsavaropoulos (26th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities), James Conolly (Trent University) and Andrew Bevan (University College London). The project ran from 2005 to 2007, and sought to address the history of the tiny island of Antikythera in the insular Mediterranean. Despite its small size, Antikythera has a history going back to the Neolithic, as was proven by the survey through finds such as projectile points dated between the Final Neolithic and Early Bronze Age. The project also found that Antikythera has a substantial Bronze Age presence, a fortified Hellenistic pirate town, several Late Roman communities, and Byzantine and Venetian evidence in addition to a period of more recent re-colonization.
