Experience Greece & Turkey with NIC this Spring

Immerse yourself in the culture and mythology of Greece and Turkey with NIC students and instructors in a one-of-a-kind travel opportunity.

The In Search of the Trojan War Field School features a May 16 to June 15, 2013 tour abroad. Limited public space is still available.

Tour the National Archeological Museum in Athens, discover Ithaca, wander the Peloponnesian palace remains at Mycenae and Pylos, stay at Helen’s Sparta, rest on the beaches of the island of Lesbos, stand on the plains of Troy itself; and explore the streets, bazaar and mosques of Istanbul.

“It is possible, on a trip like this, to lose yourself in time,” said NIC anthropology instructor Jim Anderson, who joins English instructor Anne Cumming and history instructor Dan Hinman-Smith for the trip. “Past participants really transported themselves in time and experienced what it must have been like to be there.”
