Lechaion Harbor and Land Settlement Project in Greece (CLSC 318/418)
In-Country Dates: June 13-July 7, 2018
Faculty leader: Prof. Paul Iversen

 
This interdisciplinary course takes place in situ in the Mediterranean. The Summer 2018  program will be attached to an active archaeological project: the Lechaion Harbor & Settlement Project. Students will learn the methodological principles of archaeological and epigraphical fieldwork by participating in activities such as surveying, excavation, museum work, geophysical survey, artifact analysis, and other scientific techniques. In addition to working in the field and museum, students will receive an introduction to the history of Greco-Roman culture through visits to major archaeological sites in the region, including Athens, Mycenae, Tiryns, and Nauplion.

Contact Prof. Paul Iversen at paul.iversen@cwru.edu for more details or if you have any questions regarding the course itself.
