Community Archaeology

This presentation explains the Community Backed Archaeology concept.

Greek government archaeologists were assisted by a team of archaeology students from Greece, members of the local community and Diaspora – in a ‘Community Backed’ project.

The idea is a 360 degree approach, where the community supports archaeologists – who conduct field research in the quest for new evidence from the past, which then gets documented/analysed, then shared back with the community as a new chapter of history.

Perhaps this ‘Community Backed’ concept can be applied throughout Greece (potentially also in other countries), in letting the Diaspora help support/sponsor the search for new information about their heritage.

Thank you Maria Fardoulis for taking this video.
