Applications are still open for an intensive, two-week course on ‘Byzantine Archaeology and History’ at the British School at Athens.

Course dates: 22 July – 2 August 2024 in Athens, Greece.
Application deadline: 31 March 2024

Teaching will be delivered in the form of lectures and seminars both in the classroom or as part of on-site visits in museums and archaeological sites. Field trips include but are not limited to a tour of Byzantine remains of Athens, on-site lectures at the Byzantine and Christian Museum, the Benaki Museum, the Canellopoulos Museum, as well as field trips and visits to the Monasteries of Dafni, Hosios Loukas, Orchomenos and at the Byzantine town of Mystras. Students will also have the opportunity to access the BSA Archive’s ‘Byzantine Research Fund’ collection: this unique archive of architectural drawings, photographs and notebooks was created from the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century by a small team of British architects, and records Byzantine monuments in Greece, Turkey, Italy, the Near East, Egypt, and Cyprus.

We welcome applications from world-wide postgraduate students in archaeology, liberal arts, classics and history.
