The Archaeologist’s Home begins a series of seminars of archaeological interest. The seminars have a dual purpose. Firstly, they intend to introduce interested students of archeology to specialisations and archaeological lessons that are rarely taught in universities; to familiarise archaeologists with new theories and new archaeological data, and to initiate the wider public in the science of archeology. Secondly, they aim to give the opportunity to young researchers and archaeologists to teach their specialised knowledge acquired during their doctoral, post-doctoral or other research. Moreover, the Archaeologist’s Home hopes to co-operate with other archaeological societies, institutions and archaeological associations, thus enhancing their work.
The archaeological seminars aim to cover the entire range of archeology, from Prehistory to modern times. They will be delivered in both Greek and English. In this way, the Greeks are expected to come into contact with foreign archaeologists and other ways of thinking. Emphasis will be placed on new methods of excavations and, in particular, the use of new technological methods.
The seminars will last up to two months and will take place on a weekly basis. Some seminars will be intensive and will be held within a few days. Many seminars are planned to be attended through the internet.
