From 2014 to 2017, the Western Argolid Regional Project conducted an archaeological survey in the mountainous valleys in the watershed of the Inachos river (Greece). The survey collected a lot of information about the ancient, medieval and modern use and occupation of this archaeologically neglected area. As has become common in Greek archaeology, the project also had an ethnographic component that involved engaging local inhabitants. This paper attempts to bring these two components together to ask what an archaeology of the Greek landscape might look like if we took local knowledge seriously and incorporated it into our theoretical frameworks.
