The Stélida Naxos Archaeological Project (SNAP), on the Cycladic island of Naxos, Greece, directed by Dr. Tristan Carter focuses on the excavation of an early prehistoric quarry for the extraction of chert for the making of stone tools. The survey that preceded the excavation recovered tools of Lower/Upper Palaeolithic, and Mesolithic tools, and represents the earliest excavated site in the region.  Follow them this summer on their blog, Facebook page, or on YouTube.
