2021 Season Report

The 2021 season at the Michigan State University Excavations at Isthmia, which began on 21 July and ended on 24 August, involved a range of research and site maintenance activities. The ongoing COVID pandemic continues to have a significant impact on work at Isthmia, largely due to the closure of the site to non-essential personnel for the majority of 2020 and the lingering effects of travel restrictions on the project staff. Therefore the 2021 team consisted of the following individuals.

  • William Batson: scanning specialist
  • Stephen Bush: archaeology student
  • Alyssa DeTorrice: archaeology student
  • Jon M. Frey: director
  • Melissa Morison: ceramic specialist
  • Stephan Song: scanning specialist
  • Dan Trego: study program coordinator
  • Lita Tzortzopoulou-Gregory: assistant director
