The Archaeology Department has been conducting and funding systematic archaeological fieldwork at two world-famous archaeological sites in Greece: the Mycenaean citadel, palace, and lower town of Mycenae in the Argolid, the capital city of King Agamemnon (since 2002), and the Mycenaean citadel of Glas in Boeotia (since 2010). Fieldwork at these sites is conducted under the auspices of the Athens Archaeological Society. Graduate and undergraduate archaeology students are trained every summer in excavation, recording, cataloging, drafting, photographing, sifting and flotation, cleaning and conservation; study of various types of finds in the local museum; study of stratigraphy, topography, geology and geoarchaeology; surface survey and geophysical survey with remote sensing techniques (GPR, Magnetometry, Electrical Resistivity); use of Total Station and differential GPS; application of G.I.S., 3-D site/object scanning.
