ΝΑΙΕΤΑΩ Δ' ΙΘΑΚΗΝ - I AM FROM ITHACA

A short archaeological documentary by Yiannis Arsenis

Be a part of the discovery of one of the most important archaeological findings of Mycenaean Era. Help the Archaeological Team of the University of Ioannina in Greece to unearth the ruins of Odysseus Palace on the island of Ithaca.

The excavations at St. Athanasios area in Ithaca has been identified by Greek archaeologists as the palace of Odysseus. The site is believed to be a large Mycenaean palatial building complex occupying two levels. A stairway cut into the solid bedrock of the hill provided easy access to the two levels. Other finds on the site include a funerary enclosure, a large circular structure whose purpose is unknown, several storerooms and workshops, a sophisticated drainage system and an underground cistern. The complex is believed to date to around 1300 BCE.
The excavations are currently on hold owing to a lack of funding from the Greek government.

Here is where all of us are asked to come aboard, by donating whatever amount of money is possible to spare for each one of us.

The money that we will raise will be donated to the University of Ioannina for the specific purpose: The continuation of the archaeological excavations and research of Odysseus Palace on the island of Ithaca.
