Due to the extensive age and fragile nature of the ruins, which require intense preservation, the sampling of Knossos would require a strategy that can cover a large area, while maintaining caution as to avoid damaging any artifacts.

  • Stratified Unaligned Systematic Sampling may provide excavators with the means of covering a large area while using smaller sub-grids to make sure that every detail of the multiple portions of the site can be evaluated.
  • A planimetric map of the site would allow for better measurement details and relationships between objects, which would help in the creation of a sampling strategy of the site.
