The Helike Project – Greece 2010

November 19, 2007

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.

There are no pre-requisites for participation in the expedition. All instruction is by professionals in the field. 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.

Volunteer contribution of €550 per week of their stay for a standard accommodation with 2 persons per room, or €800 per week for an individual room. The minimum period is two weeks. This donation covers hotel room, two meals per day for a seven-day week, plus some Helike Project expenses.

Dates: 5 July – 13 August 2010



Helike is located on the southwest shore of the Gulf of Corinth , about 7 km southeast of Aigion.
