Agora Excavations, The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Athens, Greece
The ASCSA Agora Excavations Conservation Laboratory is offering 2-3 Archaeological Conservation Internships for the 2018 summer excavation season. The internships will give students an opportunity to treat freshly excavated archaeological finds and to participate in an active on-site conservation laboratory. An introduction to the re-treatment, preventive and long-term care of archaeological collections will also be provided. For more information about the internships please see at: www.ascsa.edu.gr/index.php/about/position – Archaeological Conservation Summer Internships .
