KYMISSALA: Archaeology - Education - Sustainability Paperback / softback
Edited by Manolis I. Stefanakis
The area of Kymissala on the southwest coast of Rhodes is of great archaeological interest, as it conceals a large number of important archaeological sites belonging to the lesser known ancient deme of the Rhodian countryside, the deme of Kymissaleis.
The region is also of exceptional environmental and ecological importance, as it has a particular biodiversity and is protected by the European 'Natura 2000' network of nature protection areas.
Kymissala has systematically been researched during the past 10 years by the Kymissala Archaeological Research Project (KARP) inaugurated by the Department of Mediterranean Studies and the Ephorate of Antiquities of the Dodecanese in 2006.
The research, escaping from its narrow academic and archaeological context and exploiting the comparative advantage of the region, may -and should- inter alia, intervene in a mild and sustainable manner in the promotion of the archaeological site of Kymissala.
Its ultimate goal is to promote the antiquities of the area, its educational value and its historical and cultural continuity within a protected natural environment, in the context of an ecological-archaeological park.
Under the title Kymissala: Archaeology - Education - Sustainability, fourteen original studies have been published, constituting the first complete presentation of the area of Kymissala and the work in progress, after ten years of systematic research, in terms of Archaeology, Education and Sustainable Development.
