Dates: May 30–June 20, 2020 (3 weeks)

Students will be immersed in a three-week experience of local living, study, on-site research and travel throughout Greece and Turkey. The seminar will focus on ancient history, culture, landscape, and the crafts/artifacts of ancient Greece. How do archeology and the art of curating artifacts affect the stories they tell today?
