Archaeological Fieldwork

The Foundation aims at aiding, sustaining, and advancing archaeological research in all periods of antiquity.

Specifically, the Foundation provides grants for:

  • the operation of archaeological projects with significant potential for advancing our knowledge of ancient Pylos; currently the Foundation supports the Iklaina Archaeological Project, but additional projects in the area of Pylos will be supported in the future as the Foundation grows
  • the preservation, conservation, and management of archaeological sites and the cultural resources of the area;
  • the purchase of land for systematic excavation;
  • the purchase of infrastructure, materials, and equipment needed for original archaeological fieldwork, as well as for museum and lab analyses of finds;
  • archaeological projects by individual scholars and scientists.
