Eastern Boeotia Archaeological Project
Eleon Excavation 2013
Student Volunteer Program
This excavation project investigates a small settlement in central Greece, with particular emphasis on the Mycenaean period (ca. 1700-1200 BCE). Student volunteers will participate in all aspects of fieldwork, learning stratigraphic excavation techniques, recording methods, and artifact analysis. It is fun, but physically strenuous work; all participants must be in good physical condition and able to participate in all aspects of the fieldwork.
All team members are expected to be attendance for the full six-week season, June 2nd - July 13th, 2013.
The excavation team lives in modest, shared apartments in the nearby town of Dilesi, which offers swimming in the Euboean Gulf, internet access, and public transportation to Athens.
