About Us | Aims

The founders of GACUK strongly believe that the history and archaeology of Greece are important assets of Western culture and a better understanding of them is essential to a deeper appreciation of the shaping of the modern world. GACUK considers therefore that the dissemination of information on current archaeological work in Greece to British academics and the public at large and the resulting international recognition of this work is of great importance.

In order to achieve these aims, GACUK organises two annual public lectures in London presenting to the British archaeological community and the learned public, unpublished material and other aspects of interest from excavations in Greece and Cyprus. Moreover, GACUK awards scholarships for post-graduate studies in British Universities to Greek and Cypriot-Greek students of moderate means, who have obtained a first-class degree or equivalent in their previous studies from reputable universities.
