Chapter Summary

The excavations conducted from 1963 to 1968 by The University of Chicago and Indiana University, Bloomington, were planned to reveal information about the &t;living and working conditions and facilities of the lowest classes, for operation mechanics of the Greek port, and for patterns of trade as well as evidence for the history of religion in Greece". The excavation of Kenchreai, whose remains lie partly under water, used for the application of the newly developing techniques of underwater and shallow-water archaeology. The project recreates a three-dimensional plan of the site with finds positioned in their places of discovery. Two basic categories of materials were found in the fountain court and temple cellar: materials related to a major renovation and redecoration of some or all of the buildings in the temple complex, and materials that had been - either at that time or subsequently - deposited in the area.

Keywords: excavation; Greece; Kenchreai; renovation materials; underwater archaeology
