Northern Greece Expedition



With popular Aegean leader, Dr. Ken Sheedy
Discover the Archaeological Heritage of Northern Greece

April 26-May 10, 2019

We invite you to join us as we explore the archaeological heritage of Northern Greece, April 26-May 10, 2019, with noted archaeologist, Dr. Ken Sheedy!

Agean Odyssey

We will explore the homeland of Alexander the Great, and King Philip II of Macedon, and the ancient cities of Northern Greece. We will see tombs which were discovered in the last 60 years, including the famous Macedonian Tomb from the late 4th century BC, and others in the 3rd century BC.

At Aegai, we will see the spectacular Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aegai which is underground and is extraordinary. It is believed to be the royal tomb of King Philip II.

Elsewhere we will see superb Byzantine architecture and artifacts from the Paleolithic to the Roman period, the ancient Royal Palace of Pella, and ancient cities of Therma, Olynthus, Argilos, and Stagira, the birthplace of Aristotle, as well as the historic city of Thessaloniki.

To the east, we will explore ancient Kavala and Philippi, the “small Rome,” and the ancient forum on the island of Thasos, all with the superb leadership of Ken Sheedy. Dazzling gold objects from these sites are found in the excellent archaeology museums on our route, plus so much more!

We hope you will join us as we delve into this fascinating heritage of Northern Greece!
