The Project COPIS
Besides its obvious contribution to the knowledge of an era long neglected, the study of the Ottoman archives for the Corinthia region has direct relevance with many archaeological projects in the region, the majority of which have been and are being conducted under the auspices of the American School of Classical Studies: the Corinth excavations, the Isthmia excavations, the East Corinthia archaeological survey (ECAS), the archaeological project at Kenchreai, the Nemea excavations, the Nemea valley archaeological project (NVAP), the Phlious survey, the Sikyon survey project, the Berbati valley survey, the archaeological exploration of Cleonae, the Methana survey and the excavations at Stymphalos. The originality of the proposed project lies in the fact that the Ottoman sources will be read against the evidence yielded by all those archaeological projects, thus offering a perspective of the Braudelian ‘long durée”, making it possible to offer a comprehensive picture of the evolution of the Corinthian plateau from antiquity to the modern era.
