Athens Classical Archaeology Intensive Summer Program - January 4-25 2019

On-site teaching in Athens, Attika and Delphi

The Department of Archaeology and the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens invite your application to join the fifth Classical Archaeology Intensive Summer Program in Athens.

The Summer Program is a unique opportunity to study the archaeology and history of ancient Athens at first hand. With a particular focus on the Archaic and Classical periods (ca. 630-323 B.C.) and under expert tuition, you will enjoy formal lectures integrated with daily visits to archaeological sites and museums in Athens and Attica. You will also travel further afield to the panhellenic sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi.

The course is open to students of Australian and New Zealand universities and to high school teachers in Australia and New Zealand. Interested members of the general public are also welcome to apply.
