The 2010 campaign of the Zakynthos Archaeology Project took place on the peninsula of Vasilikos in the south-east of the island, where we had surveyed also in 2006. In addition to covering more ground by archaeological survey, the return after four years also enabled us to evaluate survey methodologies and changes in the landscape. In the area near ‘Banana beach’, where the landscape is being changed to accommodate tourist facilities, spots with buried ceramics dating to the Early and/or Middle Bronze Ages were discovered. The same periods were represented at a newly discovered site in the hills of Vasilikos-Doretes. A rediscovered Mycenaean tomb, a Hellenistic-Roman defensive post and a number of find concentrations show that Vasilikos constitutes an important diachronic archaeological landscape from the Palaeolithic to the present day.
