About this project
FUNDS WILL COVER
Flights, food and lodging for 12 crew members for a 10 day shoot. We land in Athens with Dr Stickel and Professor Irini Vallera-Rickerson (a Greek National) and interview leading Greek Homeric scholars in locations around the Acropolis. We will be shooting two hi-definition cameras as we travel by sea to the Island of Kefalonia and the sites previously surveyed in an area known as Paliki.
There are significant costs to employ an essential instrument for our endeavor; Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). This technology will help Dr Stickel look for features, such as foundations, cooking areas and tools - consistent with a bronze age structure utilizing Homers detailed descriptions.
If the Goddess Athena is with us and we find Odysseus' Palace, you will have been part of a MAJOR HISTORY MAKING ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIND!
