The Olynthos Project is a multi-disciplinary archaeological field project centred on the Classical city of Olynthos in northern Greece.   The Project works on different scales (household, neighborhood and city-wide) to understand a variety of aspects of the society and economy of the city, and how they changed through time.

The Project was initiated with permission from the Greek Ministry of Culture, in spring 2014, under the direction of the 16th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, in collaboration with the Universities of Liverpool and Michigan and under the auspices of the British School at Athens. From 2015 onwards the Project has become a collaboration with a number of different Ephorates of the Greek Archaeological Service.

This website is intended to provide an introduction to the work of the Olynthos Project for students and interested members of the public.  Use the drop-down menus at the top of the page to learn more about the project. For some interim results, see under “The ancient city.”
