The Azoria Project is a case study of urbanization in the Mediterranean, exploring the Early Iron Age and Archaic town of Azoria (ca. 1200-500 B.C.). The focus of the excavation is on ancient agricultural practices, providing new evidence for the relationship between food procurement, processing and consumption, and the development of social and political systems in the early Greek world.
Crete’s Culinary Sanctuaries is a network of teachers in Crete, Greece organizing educational programs to celebrate and help protect our heritage. Accredited study tours and public seminars are conducted on-site: historic sites, organic farms, rural communities and natural parks.
