What an opportunity! We have the exclusive rights to allow you to actually join Professor Maggidis and the team at Mycenae in the Greek Argolid as they survey and excavate this famous Bronze Age palace and fable home of Agamemnon. You, your small group or family will receive bespoke training, lectures and off-limits tours.


Archaeological context

Under the leadership of Professor Maggidis of the Mycenaean Foundation, the team from Dickinson University have been excavating the Bronze Age palace of Mycenae for many years.

 In 2016 they made the most amazing find - a piece of a stone throne from the throne room of the palace that was destroyed by earthquake in 2nd millennium BC. Could this be the throne of Agamemnon himself?

Join Professor Maggidis and his team at Mycenae as they continue this work, learn excavation techniques in the dig-simulator, participate in fieldwork, pre and post excavation activities.
