Please join us for a night of temples, tombs, and tele-streaming!
It’s that time of year again, time for Nemea Center Director, Dr. Kim Shelton, to bring us all up to speed with the center’s progress and state of affairs.
For the first time since 2019, Nemea Night will have an in-person option for attendance, but space is extremely limited and we will therefore continue our new tradition of streaming the event online. We encourage you to join us virtually this year so that we can continue minimizing health risks and so that you can continue attending special events in sweat pants from the comfort of your couch or home office! In order to register for the event online, please follow this link. Once you’ve filled in and submitted the registration form, the streaming link will be delivered to your inbox. Then, all you’ll have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
This year we can expect updates on safety protocols, conservation efforts, and improvements to the visitor experience at the Mycenaean cemetery of Aidonia. Dr. Shelton will also guide us through recent work at the Sanctuary of Zeus at Nemea where the Nemea Center has begun a new project aimed at understanding legacy materials, conserving architecture, updating displays, and reconfiguring the on-site museum. For a sneak peek at some of the team’s work at Nemea, check out our recent blog post. As always, there are fascinating stories and fantastic photos from our ongoing study sessions taking place both at the Archaeological Museum of Nemea AND the Archaeological Museum of Mycenae. Several researchers are helping to bring those stories to life, so we hope you will tune in to learn more.
We very much look forward to reuniting with you all online once again for a special night full of behind-the-scenes images and headline-worthy announcements connected to the Nemea Center’s work in Greece and in California. Happy Holidays!
