Aegeus is growing!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that four new talented fellows have been added to the Aegeus Committee of Fellows since January 2014. The new fellows will be joining the existing team of seven fellows in the daily tasks of maintaining the Aegeus website and producing the newsletter, organizing the Aegean lectures and editing the book review department, as well as contributing to the all other Aegeus events and activities across the society’s departments.

A significant donation from the Norwegian Institute at Athens

Aegeus would like to express its sincere gratitude to the Norwegian Institute at Athens (Det Norske Institutt I Athen) for the generous donation of 500 Euros to the causes of our Society. Such actions not only offer us significant material support but also the much needed moral encouragement in order to continue our common effort in Aegeus Society.

Maria Kosma’s lecture

We would like to thank Maria Kosma for her excellent lecture on the recent discovery of Early Helladic Tombs at Nea Styra, Euboea. We wish her the best of luck with the ongoing research of the area and the publication of the findings. We would also like to thank the large number of members and friends who attended the lecture.

A new tax

Dear members and friends of Aegeus,

At a time of continuing economic crisis and recession, the Greek Ministry of Finance is once again imposing a business tax on any company or organisation including non-profit ones,  a tax that now amounts to 500 Euros every year. Practically, this means that about 10 % of the annual subscription of each one of our members is now paid back to the Greek Ministry of Finance, thus greatly reducing the limited resources of Aegeus, resources that would have been geared towards the implementation of the Aegeus projects.

Aegeus is back from the summer holidays!

Dear Members and Friends,

Over the next 6 months we will be gradually making changes to our website in order to improve its operation and update various sections. We would like to inform you in advance that some errors may appear during this process and we may have to disable several sections of the site for approximately one month. The Members of Aegeus will continue to receive emails with news on Aegean prehistoric archaeology throughout this period.

Happy summer!

Dear members and friends, we wish you a happy summer!

During the summer, our website will be updated only sporadically as most of us are participating in excavations and other research projects. Please, don’t forget to renew your subscription.

See you in September!

Aegeus and the Swedish Institute at Athens are happy to invite you to the presentation of the archaeological film TO.RA.KE. (with English subtitles) by Philippos Koutsaftis.

The presentation will take place at the Swedish Institute at Athens (Μitseon 9, Acropolis Metro station), on Friday 14 June 2013, 19:00.
