Excavation Supervisors at Ancient Corinth

Call for Excavation Supervisors for the 2024 Season at Ancient Corinth

The Corinth Excavations of the American School are looking for advanced graduate students to serve as supervisors during the spring 2024 field season. The season is divided into three four-week sessions, each comprising three weeks of excavation and one week of analysis, synthesis, and clean-up. Session 1 will run from April 1 to April 26; session 2 from April 28 to May 24; and session 3 from May 26 to June 23. Applicants may request to stay for one or more sessions.

At Corinth, experienced local workers are entrusted with most of the actual digging, while supervisors are expected to maintain a synchronous record of the fieldwork with the aid of the iDig app. Supervisors are also expected to work with the Director and Associate Director in processing the context pottery and other small finds from their area and in producing a synthetic report on their area at the end of each session. 

Additional information regarding the responsibilities of the supervisors and the daily work schedule can be found at https://www.ascsa.edu.gr/excavations/ancient-corinth/about-the-excavations-1/information-for-excavators-and-volunteers.

Excavation in 2024 will continue in the area northeast of the theater, where work was initiated in 2018. For information on the most recent season, click here. Reports on previous seasons appear in Hesperia 89 (2020) pp. 125-190; Hesperia 90 (2021) pp. 773-818; Hesperia 92 (2023) pp. 355-404.
