The Zagora Archaeological Project is back for 2019

The University of Sydney’s Department of Archaeology and the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens in collaboration with Sydney University Museums and GML Heritage are returning to the important archaeological site of Zagora on the island of Andros in 2019.

The 2019 field season is due to start in July and will last for three weeks. The Hellenic Ministry of Culture has granted the permit for the 2019 Zagora fieldwork and preparations are underway.

During the three weeks we will further explore the site through archaeological excavation, archaeological surface survey, and thermal/infrared imaging to detect subsurface remains.

We have an amazingly talented team joining us this year. I will introduce them all throughout the course of the dig but here is a sneak peek!

The Co-Directors:

  • Associate Professor Dr Lesley Beaumont;
  • Dr Paul Donnelly;
  • Professor Margaret Miller; and
  • Dr Stavros Paspalas.

The Field Team:

  • Giorgos Agavanakis;
  • Rudy Alagich;
