The American School of Classical Studies at Athens has published NVAP II: Landscape Archaeology and the Medieval Countryside, by Effie Athanassopoulos, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Classics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This volume presents the results of the medieval component of the Nemea Valley Archaeological Project (NVAP) survey conducted from 1985-1990. It is also concerned with general trends and important sociopolitical changes that affected such developments in the Nemea region in the medieval period.

"The ASCSA is the preeminent center of study of the Greek world from antiquity to the present day," Priscilla Hayden-Roy, interim department chair and professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, wrote in an email. "This is, needless to say, an extremely prestigious publication, deeply researched, richly detailed. It required years of dedicated work both in the field and in analyzing collected data.

"This is a milestone in Effie's career, and a great feather in her cap."
