Project Description:

The Corinth Excavations of the American School are looking for advanced graduate students to serve as supervisors during the spring 2024 field season. The season is divided into three four-week sessions, each comprising three weeks of excavation and one week of analysis, synthesis, and clean-up. Session 1 will run from April 1 to April 26; session 2 from April 28 to May 24; and session 3 from May 26 to June 23. Applicants may request to stay for one or more sessions.

At Corinth, experienced local workers are entrusted with most of the actual digging, while supervisors are expected to maintain a synchronous record of the fieldwork with the aid of the iDig app. Supervisors are also expected to work with the Director and Associate Director in processing the context pottery and other small finds from their area and in producing a synthetic report on their area at the end of each session.
