We invite students with a serious interest in Archaeology to come to Athens three weeks in January to participate in the excavation of a site associated with Aixonides Halai, one of the ten demes of ancient Attica. This will be offered as a short, INTENSIVE course with a total of 22 classroom contact hours, 12 hours of lab-work and teaching plus 45 hours of supervised participation on-site. The next excavation is scheduled for January 8 -27, 2018.
The excavation site is located in the modern town of Voula, a coastal suburb of Athens. It contains ruins of large ancient blocks, suggesting the presence of a significant public building. Excavations to date have unearthed material from the Byzantine, Roman and Classical periods, including three Roman kilns and a marble lion.
The 2018 Voula Field School dates are: January 8 -27, 2018. Students should plan to arrive in Athens and check-in on Friday, January 5.
This is an INTENSIVE course with a total of 22 classroom contact hours,12 hours of lab-work and teaching plus 45 hours of supervised participation on-site.
Participation in this three-week course requires the payment of a fee of $1200, which covers the cost of the archaeological field work, lectures, visits to related sites, and housing in CYA apartments.
