Major Archaeological Seminar in Athens

Conferences in and about Greece Directory - Previous Article - Next Article

From: "HR-Net News Distribution Manager" <>

Originally From:

A major multinational archaeological seminar is scheduled to take place in Athens May 7th through May 10th, 2002.

It is called the Arcadia Seminar, sponsored by the Norwegian Institute at Athens. During that Seminar there will be 50 Scholars of Archaeology from 13 countries to present their individual research papers on archaeological sites in Arcadia.

The centerpiece of the research will be focused on the 4th century BC Sanctuary of Athena Alea of Tegea, 8 KM south of Tripoli.

These scholars have spent many years of research at the Sanctuary that is described by Pausanias as "The largest and finest in the Peloponnese." They are now ready to present their findings to the world and give us an idea of what we have inherited from our ancestors.

Dr. Erik Ostby, Professor of the University of Bergen in Norway has directed the Tegea Project for many years. His team consists of archaeologists from 13 countries under the auspices of the Norwegian Institute in Athens.

The excavation will allow these scholars to trace important developments in ancient Greek religion and architecture during the formative centuries of Greek history, when the foundations of Greek religion were being laid.

If we can support these scholars in their efforts, we have a unique opportunity to expose these hidden treasures to the world and make Tegea a major tourist site.
