    What is Corinth Excavations?

    Corinth Excavations is an American archaeological excavation and research center for the study of the Greek world from antiquity to the present day. As part of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), a foreign archaeological school in Greece, Corinth Excavations strives to advance knowledge of Greece in all periods by training young scholars, sponsoring and promoting archaeological fieldwork, providing resources for scholarly work, and disseminating research. Excavations in Ancient Corinth, Greece, began in 1896 and have continued with little interruption, making Corinth Excavations one of the longest-running systematic excavations of an ancient city in the world.
