A talk explaining how members of the Kytherian-Australian community helped to organise a team who supported
archaeological digs on Kythera during July, 2010.

Sections of the mostly forgotten 2400+ year old ancient capital
were found at Palaeokastro, helping discover a new chapter of ancient history. Hear how the team found walls,
columns, coins, thousands of roof tile fragments, ancient ceramics and dozens of other different kinds of artefacts.

Key finds and an explanation of how the same community backed concept could be implemented in other parts of
Greece will be presented.

Where: Sydney University, New Law School Lecture Theatre 101
