Gianluca Cantoro, Postdoc Researcher of GeoSat ReSeArch Lab (Lab of Geophysical Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeoenviroment) of F.O.R.T.H. earned a Fellowship from the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation for the project "CRETE-FROM-ABOVE, Fossil Built Landscapes on Cretan Mountains and Satellite Islands Investigated from the Sky".
The project of Gianluca Cantoro, which will benefit from the supervision of Prof. K. Kopaka (Univ. of Crete) and Dr. A. Sarris (F.O.R.T.H.) and is mainly oriented to University dissemination. It deals with the mountainous built environments, in an effort to form a thesaurus of abandoned villages and other architectural remains/monuments on mountain and insular Cretan settings.
The ultimate aim is to start investigating such sites, in their majority ignored, forgotten or undervalued, and try to understand relevant human activities connected with them.
Deliverables of the project will be also 3 open seminars at the University of Crete to be undertaken between March and May 2017.
