A prosperous and strategic ancient city, Corinth has been excavated by the American School since 1896.


Ancient Corinth

Ancient Corinth is the American School's longest running excavation. Our excavation team has documented the history of the site and its territory from the Early Neolithic period (ca. 6,500 B.C.) to the modern day. The ancient city center, where St. Paul preached and which is toured by more than 150,000 visitors annually, is dominated by impressive Greek, Roman, and Byzantine monuments. In addition to our training program in excavation techniques and procedures, we have recently embarked on an ambitious outreach program for school audiences in the U.S. and Greece and a comprehensive program of heritage management.
