2nd to 15th April 2017

Camping accommodation will be provided at the Lemba Archaeological Research Centre (LARC). The centre is located in the middle of the village of Lemba, next door to the kafeneio (coffee shop) and the Lemba Pottery shop. LARC is where the course will be held, with practical workshops being carried out at the nearby Chalcolithic site of Lamba-Lakkous. 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. Camping will be provided on the flat roof of the building beneath the trailing grape vines. 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 don't need pegs would be ideal).

The cost for the field school is 450 UK pounds per person and includes accommodation, transport on all site visits, meals on work days and a final evening BBQ. Flights are not included. A 5% discount is available when two or more places are booked at the same time. 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.
