The Department of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology is a fully supported graduate program at Bryn Mawr and part of the The Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics and History of Art. Each of these departments has a distinguished tradition and strong national standing, and interdisciplinary study is encouraged by the faculty, promoting a strong sense of community and collegiality among the graduate students. The graduate curriculum, which stresses both breadth and depth of study, has prepared students for successful careers in a variety of fields, including teaching, research, publishing, and work in museums and foundations.
Excavations at Burgaz.
The Butrint Foundation aimed to use modern field methods to understand the history of Butrint and its region in its Mediterranean context. The archaeological programme has comprised three phases: first, defining the character and extent of Butrint’s archaeology; second, selecting areas for selective large-scale investigation; and, third, preparing the results for publication, archiving and ordered storage at the site.
The Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük was first discovered in the late 1950s and excavated by James Mellaart between 1961 and 1965. The site rapidly became famous internationally due to the large size and dense occupation of the settlement, as well as the spectacular wall paintings and other art that was uncovered inside the houses. Since 1993 an international team of archaeologists, led by Ian Hodder, has been carrying out new excavations and research, in order to shed more light on the people that inhabited the site.
On-line collections of the French School of Archaeology at Athens.
CEFAEL (Publications en ligne) posts on-line the Hellenic Correspondence Bulletin, and the whole of the monographs, thus offering the public the opportunity to consult a whole of about 250.000 pages, a collection that is expected to evolve.
The Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, located in the East Building at the National Gallery of Art, is a research institute that fosters study of the production, use, and cultural meaning of art, artifacts, architecture, and urbanism, from prehistoric times to the present. Founded in 1979, the Center encourages a variety of approaches by historians, critics, and theorists of art, as well as by scholars in related disciplines of the humanities and social sciences.
The Center for Ancient Studies at the University of Pennsylvania strives to bring together students and faculty, as well as members of the greater Philadelphia community, who share a passion for the ancient world, through the promotion and support of events pertaining to pre-modern societies.
The newly formed Center for Comparative Archaeology at the University of Pittsburgh aims to help accomplish that goal by fostering the broad comparative study of social change in trajectories of such time depth that their earlier periods, at least, are knowable only through archaeological research.
