Nemea Night is back for 2018! We hope you will join us on Tuesday, December 4th 2018 at 6:30pm for a reception in the East Pauley Ballroom (upstairs in the ASUC Student Union building) and a lecture at 7:30pm. Nemea Night is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the advances in Classical Archaeology being made by U.C. Berkeley faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. We share photos and news about recent excavation seasons, plans for upcoming seasons, and plenty of food and conversation with Nemea Center students and supporters.
