Voula Field School 2018

CYA commenced its first academic program of 2018 with the Voula Field School winter intersession.

The program led by CYA professors John Karavas (Excavation Director) and Angelos Papadopoulos (Field Supervisor) in cooperation with the Piraeus Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, invites Archaeology students to Greece to gain hands-on experience excavating the ancient Athenian deme of Aixonides Halai.

In an exciting new collaborative venture between the University of Sydney’s Department of Archaeology and CYA, for the very first time, we hosted 20 Archaeology students from Australia who took part in the excavation in the seaside town of Voula.

For some, it was their first opportunity to be involved in an archaeological excavation of this kind, giving them a unique chance to sharpen their practical skills. Follow our blog to learn more about their discoveries – coming soon!
