The Ioannou Centre for Classical & Byzantine Studies, Faculty of Classics, University of Oxford

For supporting the 2011 study season in the excavation site of Lefkandi, Euboea.

The Ioannou Centre for Classical & Byzantine Studies of the University of Oxford has been conducting excavations in Lefkandi, Euboea, for almost a decade, engaging Oxford students, who visit the area every summer, participating in study seasons. The site was first excavated by the British Archaeological School at Athens, in 1964, and the first discoveries in the ancient settlement Xeropolis were striking, as they revealed a history dating back to 2100 BC. The visiting students stay in Lefkandi and are actively involved on-site, in the excavation, or in data entry and findings’ preservation.
