An “International Summer School of Archaeology and Greek Language” is being organized, for the first time this year, by the Toumba Excavation of the Department of Archaeology and the School of Modern Greek Language of the Aristotle University, within the framework of its Lifelong Learning Structure. Participating in the Summer School, which ends on July 28, 2017, are undergraduate and postgraduate students from universities abroad (Arizona, Cincinnati, Durham, Glendon, Harvard, Michigan, Oxford), who are studying archaeology, history of art, anthropology, classics and history.

The programme aims to teach basic elements of communication in the Greek language with an introduction to everyday vocabulary, a familiarization with the history and archaeology of Macedonia, training in matters of excavation methodology, as well as an acquisition of special skills in documenting, recording and processing of various categories of archaeological remains (Photogrammetry, Geographic Information Systems – GIS), funerary archeology and osteoarchaeology, archaeobotany, archaeozoology, the morphological and technological analysis of ceramics.
