Corinth Excavations will happily host your school on-site at the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth. Students can interact with real archaeologists, ask them questions about Ancient Corinth or about the discipline more generally, they can see and hold real artifacts, and they can learn how the museum and the excavations operate "behind the scenes."
