DAEI fieldwork 2018

The Danish Archaeological Expedition (DAEI) will resume its Phase II (2017-19) archaeological investigations on the Rania Plain from early October 2018. 

We plan to continue our investigations of early urbanism with the excavation of additional soundings, coring and sampling at the site of Girdi Gulak to determine economic, social and spatial transformations.
