About Us

Acropolis of Athens

The Akkadium School of Anthropology and Archaeology was founded on the Acropolis of Athens in July 2016.

The School is a specialist provider of accessible learning opportunities, with a global mission to nurture awareness and promote understanding of human cultures, past and present.

In addition to offering taught programmes and courses, Akkadium is an online magazine and community — a space for sharing research, stories and events from the worlds of archaeology and anthropology.

Harnessing digital technologies and the power of community, we hope to create vibrant networks, build rewarding relationships, and together gain a deeper appreciation for the cultural developments and achievements that have shaped our world since the dawn of humankind.

Our first taught courses are currently in development, and will launch in 2017.

Meanwhile, you are warmly invited to join our community. Please submit your own news and stories, tell us what you want us to investigate, suggest the kinds of courses you’d like us to offer, and join our conversations on social media.

The study of anthropology and archaeology is a thrilling and richly rewarding adventure. We look forward to exploring these exciting worlds with you.
