25th March to 7th April 2018

Camping accommodation can be provided at the picturesque Lemba Archaeological Research Centre (LARC) and will be charged at an extra £80 (GBP) per person. The centre is where the course will be held and is centrally located in the middle of the village of Lemba, next door to the kafeneio (coffee shop) and the Lemba Pottery shop. Facilities include a toilet and shower block with hot running water and a kitchen for preparing meals. The centre is a short five-minute stroll away from a large supermarket and take-away establishments. It is also only 500m from the local sandy beach and coastal road, which has bars, restaurants and mini-markets. 

Tent plots will be provided on the flat roof of the building beneath the trailing grape vines, or in garden space behind the research centre. Mattresses will be provided but participants will need to bring their own bedding/sleeping bags. Due to the cooler spring time weather it is recommended that participants bring a tent (to be pitched on a flat roof, tents that donít need to be pegged in place to stay up would be ideal). A full list of suggested items to bring will be sent out upon an offer of a place on the course.

The cost for the field school is 550 UK pounds per person and includes training on all aspects, transport on all site visits, meals on work days and a final evening BBQ. Flights are not included. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required within 2 weeks of being offered a place on the field school in order to secure it.

No formal credits are offered but participants will complete a portfolio and course book as proof of attendance.
