The Joint Georgian-Canadian Samtskhe Archaeological Expedition is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Archaeological Research Centre of the Georgian Academy of Sciences. Excavations have been conducted from 1993 to 1997 within the village of Atskouri, located on the upper course of the Mtkvari river - better known by its Russian name of Kura - which flows down from the Armenian plateau towards the Caspian Sea. The area lay
close to the Black Sea, about 100 km away as the crow flies, from which it is separated by a segmented mountain range.
Project at Pompeii
Focused on examining the early occupation of Pompeii and how the city developed and changed over the course of its history. The project centers on Insula 1 of Regio VI, which is located just inside of the Herculaneum gateway and contains the House of the Surgeon, generally considered to be one of the oldest houses in the city.
Expedition to Pella in Jordan
Pella (Tabaqat Fahl) is located in the eastern foothills of the Jordan valley, some 90 kilometres northwest of Amman. Although the Pella region shows signs of human occupation extending back some half a million years, the main focus of recent expeditions has been occupation on and around the main tell, where a nearly continuous sequence can be obtained from modern times back to the Neolithic period, some eight and a half thousand years ago. Pella provides a unique opportunity to study changes in the way people have interacted with their landscape over an extended period of time, and to chart the ebb and flow of major civilisations in northern Jordan.
This Web site is designed for those interested in the ongoing excavations at Çatalhöyük, a Neolithic Anatolian Tell. Its aim is to provide information about the activities of the Project and of the different aspects of the research being conducted at Çatalhöyük.
The Christian Catacombs of Rome
Caesarea Maritima was founded by King Herod between 22 and 10 B.C. and it served as the main port and administrative capital of Herod's kingdom. Caesarea was the headquarters city for the ancient Roman domination of Palestine, and as such it was the site from which Pontius Pilate ruled, where the Apostle Paul was imprisoned, and where the famous Jewish Revolt of the first century A.D. began.

Excavations and Research Project (IRERP)
Excavations at Liman Tepe, Bakla Tepe and Panaztepe.
Jerash is perhaps the best preserved and most complete provincial Roman city anywhere in the world. To walk through the ancient city is to step back into the world of the 2nd Century AD provincial cities along the southeastern frontier of the Roman Empire. Jerash is the most spectacular of these cities, ten of which were loosely allied in an association of cities called the Decapolis.
Kerkenes Dagi Project
Kinet Hoyuk - Dortyol, Antakya Excavations
Kinet Hoyuk, eastern Cilicia's largest mound, is located ca. 30 km north of Iskenderun in the Turkish Hatay, and 500 m inland from
the Mediterranean coast. The site has long been identified by scholars with the classical port of Issos, in the plain where Alexander
the Great defeated Darius III in 333 B.C. Earlier, Kinet may have been the Phoenician harbor Sissu, and in Hittite times Zise. A
Bilkent University project began here with a regional survey in 1991, and preliminary soundings on the Kinet mound in 1992, in
cooperation with the Hatay Museum. Full excavation seasons were conducted in 1993-1997, and a study season in 1996. The
project is directed by Marie-Henriette Gates.

Something that most people ignore is that the town of Delphi continued its life until the first quarter of the 7th century AD, despite the decline of the pagan worship and the ban of the oracle consultation.
Leptiminus Archaeological Project, Tunisia
Marki Project, Cyprus
One of the most important periods in the long history of Cyprus is between about 2,500 and 2,000 BC. During this time - the Early Bronze Age - there were major changes in many aspects of daily life and technology which set in place social and economic systems which lasted for nearly one thousand years and provided the foundations on which later, more complex society developed.
- The 1995 Excavations of the Megaron
The megaron-complex was found to continue further to the south beyond the area with the altar or platform found in 1994. The complex now measures more than twenty meters in length. A relatively large room, built in LH IIIB was discovered opposite the entrance and south of the area with the platform, and a niche of the same type as the one containing the sword pommels was found in the east wall. The floor of the niche had been paved twice with flat stones in connection with a LH IIIB and a LH IIIC building phase. Two later rooms had been built above the eastern part of the LH IIIB room after the earthquake which damaged the megaron c. 1200 B.C.
Archaeological Researches in the Western Peloponnese
The University of Minnesota has a proud tradition of involvement in Greek archaeology. From the l950s to the 1970s, Professor William MacDonald and the Minnesota Messenia Expedition, with campaigns of field survey and excavations, made pioneering contributions to the study of the Bronze Age in the Peloponnesos. In the early 1980s, Professor Carl Sheppard excavated the Frankish cathedal at Andravida, built in the Gothic style of the early 13th century. For nearly a decade, however, this tradidon was interrupted.

Paphos Hellenistic Theatre Excavation
A team from the University of Sydney has been excavating at the site of the ancient theatre at Paphos in western Cyprus since 1995. Situated a short way up the coast from the legendary birthplace of the goddess of love, Aphrodite, the city of Paphos was founded on the site of a small earlier settlement in the later part of the fourth century BC. It soon became the capital of the island and the major regional trading port under the Ptolemies of Alexandria in Egypt who included Cyprus as part of their empire. There are many signs of their influence both in excavated finds and in architectural styles in the so-called Tombs of the Kings, the nearby cemetery apparently reserved for important officials.

A Unique Structure from the Later Roman Empire.
The jewel of South Jordan is Petra, the unique, 2,000-year-old rock-carved city, the pink and salmon coloured capital of the Nabataean Arabs. Petra is always breath-taking, never to be forgotten. It flourished for over 400 years around the time of Rome and Christ, until it was occupied by the Roman legions of the Emperor Trajan in 106 AD.
Pompeii Forum Project
The Pompeii Forum Project is a collaborative venture that focuses on the urban center of Pompeii. (The forum at any Roman town was the urban center housing the town's main religious, civic, and commercial institutions.) There are three components to the project: documentation of standing remains; archaeological analysis; and urban study that seeks a) to interpret the developments at Pompeii in the broader context of urban history and b) to identify at Pompeii recurring patterns of urban evolution that can be applied to contemporary issues in American urbanism.
This document is part of Professor Barbette Spaeth's Hypercard stack on Pompeii. Eventually, the full Hypercard stack will be converted to this format for delivery over Tulane's Campus network to students taking Pompeii:Roman Society and Culture in Microcosm.

SMU Excavations at Poggio Colla (Tuscany, Italy)The present excavations at Poggio Colla (Tuscany, Italy) began in the summer of 1995 under the overall direction of Gregory Warden, Southern Methodist University, and Susan Kane, Oberlin College. The excavations have revealed an Etruscan settlement that dates from the seventh to the third century BC. The hilltop settlement, now called Poggio Colla, was surrounded by monumental fortification walls and included a large temple.
Excavations at Petra, Jordan (Brown University)
A major objective of the excavation is to ascertain the original ground plan of the temple and its surrounding sacred precinct, and beyond this, it is to analyze the site within its context. The inhabitants of Petra created a large and complex temple area that reflected the city's political and architectural character, and the goal of research is to understand how the Southern Temple functioned both as an independent unit and as an integral part of the city organism.
Step Pyramid Complex of Djoser
The Step Pyramid Complex of Djoser (also spelled Zozer) was built during the Third Dynasty (ca. 2800 B.C.) in what is now Saqqara, Egypt. Djoser's Step Pyramid is generally considered the first tomb in Egypt to be built entirely of stone.

Archaeological Survey Project
The period 400 - 1000 A.D. has often been referred to as "the birth struggle of Europe", and rightly so. These crucial centuries witnessed the arrival of many of the peoples that today represent the eclectic mix of ethnic groups comprising modern Europe. During this tumultuous era, the political and sociocultural face of Europe was transformed both by the dissolution of Roman political administration in the West and by the formation of new cultural identities. The Valeria Archaeological Survey Project is engaged in multidisciplinary research designed to shed light upon this "dark age" of European ethnogenesis .
