We had a blast during Nemea Night 2019!

Thank you to all of the donors, students, faculty, and friends that made Nemea Night 2019 such a success! We were proud to share our progress with you all and cannot thank you enough for your continuing support. We started the night off on the right foot with Mediterranean-style morsels and Nemean wine followed by an illustrated lecture in which the director of the Nemea Center, Dr. Kim Shelton, reported to donors, faculty, and students about the recent activities of the Nemea Center that were made possible by our donors' generous support.

Nemea Center in the News:
The Nemea Center for Classical Archaeology's current excavations at Aidonia, under the direction of Dr. Kim Shelton, have recently been highlighted in Η ΚΑΘΗΜΕΡΙΝΗ. The article stresses the importance of our project in light of the site's long history of looting and illicit activities. Current efforts aim not only to recover the site's history in a responsible way, but also to strengthen community involvement and awareness as well as build a culture of stewardship and local pride.

We finished off 2018 with a bang! Aidonia appeared in the #3 spot in the National Herald's Top 2018 Archaeological Finds. Check out the full article here.
