Greece - Kephallenia


Archaeological Shoreline Research (A. Sho.Re) is a Geo-Archaeological project set up to explore the archaeology of the Coastal Zone at the Island of Kephallenia. The project aims to establish an interdisciplinary survey methodology of maritime landscapes.  Research design draws heavily on the interface between Archaeology and Earth Sciences, the geomorphic formation processes in particular (geology, geomorphology, palaeohydrology, etc.).  Fieldwork focuses on the systematic and extensive survey along the shores of SE Kephallenia.  Work will be done mostly in the shallow water off the island coast (max depth of 2 meters) and students should expect to spend most of the day snorkeling and in the water.  Students will use GPS and underwater photography to document sites.  Students attending this program must be good swimmers and have strong stamina as we will spend most of the day working in the water.  Strict safety discipline will be practiced and instructions from safety boats must be followed.  Students will be asked to adhere to special diet (provided by the project) that will enable prolonged work in marine environment
