To do this, we considered: (1) the effect of global sea-level rise and other forms of sea-level variance; (2) the sedimentologic evolution of coastal landforms, both erosional and depositional; (3) morphologies of archaeological sites at the time ofoccupancy; (4) reasons for anticipating new site discovery as well as the probable lack of sites of certain ages in some coastal landforms because of destruction or burial; and (5) the relationship of hinterland erosion processes that could have impacted the morphologic evolution of the coastal zone of Elis.
