Artefacts, Creativity, Technology, and Skills from Prehistory to the Classical Period in Greece

We welcome you to join the new educational project funded by the 4EU+ Alliance, the first archaeological project integrating teachers and students from four 4EU+ Universities: Heidelberg, Charles, Copenhagen and Warsaw. The project is entitled ‘Artefacts, Creativity, Technology, and Skills from Prehistory to the Classical Period in Greece. Communities of Learning in the Past and in Higher Education Today’ (ACTS) and it has been designed as a new platform of innovative research-based teaching among the four partner universities.
