The Center for Hellenic Studies and Sunoikisis announce the 2016 Archaeological Program at Kenchreai, the port of Corinth in southern Greece. The four-week summer program introduces students to the archaeology, history and culture of Greece through participation in a field school and accompanying seminars and excursions. The American Excavations at Kenchreai, directed by Professor Joseph L. Rife (Vanderbilt University), provide a unique opportunity to learn about the past first-hand at one of Greece’s most spectacular seaside archaeological sites.
Participants will learn about data analysis, artifact processing, and conservation, in addition to on-site exploration, architectural survey and stratigraphic documentation, all important components in archaeological fieldwork. Students will also attend a series of seminars by leading experts in several fields, from ancient religion to ceramic analysis, the digital humanities, and biological anthropology, and they will join excursions to major sites and museums in the region, such as Corinth, Perachora, Mycenae, Nemea, Epidauros, and Nafplio. The excavation team stays in comfortable lodgings in the area of Archaia Korinthos, on the site of ancient Corinth, where we enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside and the easy rhythms of a traditional community. Learn more here.
