Since 2021, the West Area of Samos Archaeological Project has been working on the Greek island of Samos, discovering and documenting brand-new archaeological sites. Join the project’s Field Director as he dishes the dirt on how this exciting project is changing our understanding of ancient and post-antique Samos; it is exploring the landscape through the use of various investigative techniques including fieldwalking, drone photography and the microscopic analysis of ceramics.

Important to these discoveries, too, is the team who made them. Come along and hear tales fresh from the field, learn about the people behind the discoveries, their good days and bad days, the anecdotes, the unexpected discoveries, the archaeology and the friends we made along the way.

This is a Cambridge Festival event. The talk will last 30 minutes, plus 15 minutes for questions.
