abstract

This paper presents an archaeological case study exemplifying the efforts to integrate methods, such as airborne LiDAR, Cosmogenic Nuclide Exposure Analysis, and Artificial Intelligence for the study of a Late Antique islandscape in Rough Cilicia/Isauria. The extensive limestone quarries on Dana Island (Pityoussa) may have functioned as an industrial settlement servicing the work of the renowned Isaurian builders. In this context, researchers face the challenge of bridging the gap between disciplines like landscape archaeology and architectural history that operate within a framework of fragmentary data and imprecise chronologies, with the premium placed on accurate and precise data acquisition by the fields of engineering.
