Aegean Lectures

Aegeus –Society for Aegean Prehistory, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute at Athens, is pleased to announce the launch of the Aegean Lectures. The Aegean Lectures are designed to present new findings, new excavations and new research studies on the prehistory of the Aegean and neighbouring regions, such as Cyprus and Asia Minor, from the Palaeolithic to the Early Iron Age (Geometric times).

Take advantage of our new initiative to digitise books and articles!

Aegeus, the University Library of Heidelberg, the Institute of Classical Archaeology of the University of Heidelberg and Propylaeum (Virtual Library of Classical Studies) are pleased to announce the beginning of a very important partnership. This collaboration aims to help researchers of Aegean prehistoric archaeology to search for books that are very hard to find in local libraries.

Welcome back!

In spite of the Greek financial crisis, Aegeus resists strongly. The new academic year finds Aegeus with new projects and new collaborations with other foundations. We will inform you as soon as possible.

And as it seems, this year will be very interesting, with new books, many lectures and conferences!

Happy summer!

Dear members and friends, Aegeus wishes you a happy summer and a prosperous fieldwork season. During the summer, our website will be updated only sporadically as most of us are participating in excavations and other research projects. Please, if you are a member of Aegeus, we would greatly appreciate if you could renew your subscription for the year 2012, as this is the only way to cover Aegeus's expenses.

Renewal of subscriptions and optional reduction of membership fees

Dear Members of Aegeus,

In these extremely difficult financial times, Aegeus is striving to continue its efforts to promote Aegean Prehistory; the research as well as the protection of our cultural heritage. The difficulties and problems we face make the need even stronger for a channel of communication, and for cooperation in order to jointly defend our goals. The work of Aegeus, up to date, has been made possible solely thanks to the material and moral support of its members; and it is only thanks to this support that we may continue to grow.

A donation from the Institute of Classical Studies

Aegeus would like to thank the Institute of Classical Studies (of London) for its significant donation of 300 Euros. We are also grateful to Dr Olga Krzyszkowska for donating to our Aegean Library  publications of the British School at Athens.
