EXCAVATION SEASON IN OLD SIKYON SUMMER 2018
The project “Finding Old Sikyon” is planning its 2018 excavation season from July 2 to August 3 and invites applications by students for their participation.
The project represents a collaboration between the National Museum of Denmark, the Ephorate of Antiquities in Corinth and the Danish Institute at Athens and is funded by the Carlsberg Foundation. It is focused on the topography, the material culture and the urban development of the pre-Hellenistic city of Sikyon, which was situated in a plain west of Corinth and was destroyed and re-founded on a nearby plateau by Demetrios Poliorketes in 303 BC. In Archaic and Classical times, the city was particularly famous for its arts and crafts and was a flourishing commercial centre. Within the fiveyears project, the first two years of research were dedicated to various surface studies, remote sensing and augering in order to secure the precise location of the city and to collect first information about its structure and
organisation. In order to gain evidence about the material culture of Sikyon and investigate its structures more closely, excavations were started in 2017, which are to be continued this year.
For these excavations, the project will need around 24 students for excavation tasks, as trench leaders (who are expected to stay a few days more before and after the season) and for the registration and processing of finds. Priority will be given to students of Classical Archaeology (or related studies) with experience in excavation and the processing of finds. The project will bear the expenses for travel, board and accommodation as well as insurance.
Applicants are asked to send a letter of motivation to the project director Silke Müth-Frederiksen (firstname.lastname@example.org) until March 19, including their experience in field-work, registration of finds, drawing, photographing and computer skills, as well as their CV.
