SCHEP is all about building Communities of Practice- groups of people who are passionate, informed, and empowered to work together toward a shared goal. The full SCHEP Community of Practice includes our site stewards, colleagues at the Department of Antiquities and ACOR, countless scholars and volunteers, and the communities where our sites are located. Those below are by no means the extent of the SCHEP Team- they’re just the people you’ll find at our office:
