The fifth excavation season at Sissi is planned from June 20th to July 29th, 2011. We hope to finish digging the floor deposits within most zones as well as save as many tombs as possible in the cemetery. It is a large team this summer with many specialists in different disciplines. If you want to come and visit us during the excavations, please get in touch beforehand. We start at 6 am with a break between 10 and 10:30 am, up to 1:30 pm….
We are now also sponsored by the Communauté française Wallonie-Bruxelles and the Loterie Nationale and have briefly figured in the National Geographic documentary on Finding Atlantis
