A new BSA residential course for UK-based undergraduates on ‘The Ancient City of Athens’. This introduces students to the physical landscape, the history and archaeology of Athens through a series of ‘key theme’ lectures and tours of the major archaeological sites and museums in Athens and Attica.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of material evidence designed to complement university teaching and to expand their range of knowledge and skills, as well as engage with important concepts such as multitemporality, anastylosis and archaeopolitics, which they can then bring to bear in the final years of their degrees. Teaching is primarily site-based, and focuses on the application of archaeology to the study of the history, language, culture, and anthropology of Greece. It is particularly relevant to university courses on Greek Archaeology, History, and Classics, but includes also the study of later periods, notably the Byzantine world with its role in preserving the Classical tradition.
The BSA offers one full scholarship, which will be assigned on the basis of merit and need.The course is directed by Georgios Mouratidis (Assistant Director of the BSA) and Rebecca Sweetman (Director of the BSA)
The course will take place 16-22 June 2024.
Application deadline is 23 February 2024.
