Abstract

Abstract The aim of this study is to manifest the contribution of integrated approaches such as GIS, geomorphology, remote sensing and DEM analysis for the detection of neolithic settlements, the modeling of habitation and the reconstruction of neolithic landscape in the area of Thessaly. Thessaly is a region of low relief in central Greece where hundreds of neolithic settlements called magoules were established from Early Neolithic period until Bronze Age. In this study field survey, statistical analysis of coring data, spatial analysis of environmental parameters in GIS and image processing techniques of satellite images and DEMs were carried out to contribute to the detection of the Neolithic settlements and the reconstruction of Neolithic landscape.
