NYU Yeronisos Island Excavations: Fieldwork Opportunity

NYU Amheida Excavations
Since 2008, NYU and ISAW have sponsored excavations at Amheida in Egypt's Dakhleh Oasis. These excavations, which contain material spanning nearly three millennia, are done in collaboration with other participating groups in the Dakhleh Oasis Project, an international venture that has studied human settlement in the area for the last three decades. Excavations so far have focused on the following areas: a centrally located upper-class fourth-century AD house with wall paintings, an adjoining school, and underlying remains of a Roman bath complex; a more modest house of the third century; and the temple hill, with remains of the Temple of Thoth built in the first century AD and of earlier structures.
The Center for Ancient Studies
NYU’s Center for Ancient Studies was created by the Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) in 1996 to promote interdisciplinary and cross-cultural study of the past. The Center does this by promoting collaboration among those FAS departments and programs which focus, in whole or in part, on antiquity and its reception in the modern world.
The Institute of Fine Arts
The Institute of Fine Arts is dedicated to graduate teaching and advanced research in the history of art, archaeology, and the conservation and technology of works of art. They co-sponsor (with Oxford University) a dig at Aphrodisias in Turkey, on which NYU students may participate, as well as other digs in Egypt, Greece, Italy, and Sudan.
Institute for the Study of the Ancient World
ISAW is a center for advanced scholarly research and graduate education, intended to cultivate comparative and connective investigations of the ancient world from the western Mediterranean to China, open to the integration of every category of evidence and relevant method of analysis. Their dig at Amheida in Egypt is open to NYU students.
