The Helike Project – Greece 2010
The Helike Project will accept students and volunteers for a minimum period of two weeks. The main focus of the fieldwork will be archaeological excavation of the Hellenistic, Classical, Early Bronze and Late Bronze Age sites discovered in recent years. We will also use bore hole drilling and geological trenching to investigate the geographic evolution of the area.

Volunteers may participate in various phases of the work, including excavation, washing potsherds and work in the conservation lab, as determined by the Project Director. They are expected to work Monday to Friday, with weekends free for rest or excursions in the region.
