Halmyris receives funding from the Rust Family Foundation

In the fall of 2017 the field staff of Halmyris led by Dr. Karavas submitted an application to the Rust Family Foundation, seeking financial support for the 2018 and 2019 field seasons. We were extremely pleased to receive the funding requested, and were able to use this funding to update our equipment as the excavations at Halmyris continue to grow. We were also able to hire workers to support our volunteer’s efforts on site, which resulted in an unparalleled 2018 season. We look forward to continuing support from the Rust Family in 2019, and are very grateful for their assistance.
