The Kastro Kallithea    rchaeological Project

Greece Archaeological Field School

May 21st – June 11th 2017



The Kastro Kallithea Archaeological Project (KKAP) has a strong mandate to educate students through experiential learning in an international setting. Participation in the Kallithea Project not only introduces the students to important archaeological skills, but also exposes them to new cultural traditions.


KKAP's 13th season once again included a field school for undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Alberta and elsewhere in Canada and abroad.


During the 2017 our students were introduced to artefact processing, the processing and analysis of human and faunal remains and they acquired knowledge about the site, its topography and its archaeological/historical setting as well as the archaeology of domestic space. In the weekends excursions were scheduled to archaeological sites and museums. This year's trips took the team to Pharsalos, Volos, Almyros and Halos. Students were also involved in a community outreach program: a mini exhibition on the project for the citizens of the Pharsala municipality.
