Research Opportunity in Greece

Excavating Ancient Eleon
May 31  –  July 12, 2015

Project Overview 
This project investigates a settlement site in the central Greek region of Boeotia, dating primarily to the Mycenaean (ca. 1700-1100 BCE) and Classical (600-400 BCE) periods. Eleon operated within the orbit of the major Greek city of Thebes, but on-going excavations reveal the diverse connections and resilient efforts of this early Greek community. You can find more information – and see many photos – at http://web.uvic.ca/~bburke/EBAP/

Volunteer Program 
Undergraduate student volunteers are a vital part of our international research team. Each participant will join in all aspects of fieldwork, learning stratigraphic excavation techniques, recording methods, and artifact analysis. The program offers experiential learning and is physically strenuous.  All participants will be required to pay a $2400 fee to cover housing, meals, local travel, and program costs for six weeks. The excavation team lives in shared apartments in the coastal town of Dilesi, which offers swimming in the Euboean Gulf, internet access, and public transportation to Athens, just one hour away.
