This 2009-2011 project was directed by D. J. Ian Begg (Trent University) and Michael C. Nelson (Queen’s College – CUNY). It investigated and documented human activity and land use at Leukos. It also established ceramic and architectural typologies and chronologies with topographic, architectural and full-coverage surface pottery sherd surveys of the area. Ceramic forms at Leukos were predominantly Phokaian Red Slip Ware, Late Roman 2 amphora, and African Red Slip Ware, and revealed a chronological timeframe of two centuries from the 5th to 6th centuries CE for human occupation and activity at Leukos.
