DIG: Fieldwork opportunity at Pylos

Speaking of Iklaina … from the Classics list:

The Iklaina Excavation is seeking students and volunteers for the 2011
field season (June 13-July 9). Iklaina is a Mycenaean town in the
region of Pylos, identified in the Linear B tablets as a-pu2, one of the
district capitals of the Hither Province (AJA 2006, pp. 205-228). The
site includes two large building complexes (one of the megaron type),
several houses, a Cyclopean terrace, and many finds, including frescoes
and Linear B. The project includes excavation, travel to the major
sites and museums in the Peloponnese, and evening classes and seminars
on Greek culture, history, and archaeology. Students can receive 6
credits through the department of Anthropology at the University of
Missouri-St. Louis; volunteers on an auditing basis are also welcome to
apply. Applications will be accepted until the project is filled. All
relevant information, including application forms and registration
instructions, can be found at the project website, www.iklaina.org.
