Kenchreai Field School

If you are student at one of the participating institutions in Sunoikisis, you are eligible to apply to the Kenchreai Archaeological Field School.  The Sunoikisis website describes the program as an introduction…

“…to the archaeology, history and culture of Greece through participation in a field school and accompanying seminars and excursions. The Kenchreai Excavations, directed by Professor Joe Rife, provide a unique opportunity to learn about the past first-hand at one of Greece’s most spectacular seaside archaeological sites. During the 2012 season participants will learn about data analysis, artifact processing, and conservation, in addition to 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 biological anthropology, and they will join excursions to major sites and museums in the region, such as Corinth, Perachora, Mycenae, Nemea, Epidauros, and Nafplion. The excavation team stays at a family-run boarding house in Archaia Korinthos, on the site of ancient Corinth, where we enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside and the easy rhythms of a traditional village community.”

The application deadline is March 16.
