The Adulis Project aims to bring to light the ancient city of Adulis, Eritrea, one of the most important ports of the ancient Red Sea. The project was commissioned by the Eritrean government and involving the Centre for Research on the Eastern Desert (Ce.R.D.O.) and the Centre for Geotechnologies of the University of Siena, in addition to the scientific advice of the Eritrean National Museum of Archaeology. The archeological site of Adulis is located about 5 km from the southwest coast of the Red Sea and 60 km south of the city of Massawa, near the river Haddas. Adulis is cited by the classical and late antique literary sources as the main commercial port in south-western coast of the Red Sea. Little is known about both the origins of the city, perhaps to be placed in the proto-Aksumite age, both for its decline, perhaps linked to the Arab invasions of the VII century AD. The research conducted so far have identified stages in the archaeological site of between I and VII century AD.

Argos on the Axios, an ancient Macedonian colony

Deadline
2013-09-10

The specific goal of this field research project is the survey of the entire area of the ridge called Vidin Grad in the Middle Vardar Valley, not far away from the well renowned Hellenistic and Roman town of Stobi. This site is known thanks to the work of epigraphists and archaeologists in the middle decades of the past century. It’s been tentatively related to an ancient town known from the historical sources as Argos. Because of its name, size and location it has been suggested that this settlement, along with a few other centers in the Middle Vardar Valley were colonies established by the late Antigonids (the last dynasty that ruled ancient Macedonia) in the 3rd and the first half of the 2nd century BC. However, the body of archaeological evidence available so far doesn’t allow one to reject or accept this thesis. On the site Vidin Grad in particular, research has come to a standstill over the past few decades. Earlier research mostly consisted of study of epigraphic monuments and architectural sculpture, architectural survey and unsystematic gathering of surface artifacts. The importance of this site and the poor degree of research gave the main incentive to instigate a more systematic field research. In addition we point to the fact that the site is situated in the immediate catchment of a modern village and has been attacked both by agricultural activities and illicit digging.

Asia - China - Yangguanzhai Field School - 2016

Deadline

In the coming 2016 season, the project will continue working in the northeast portion of the site. There are multiple possible excavations that we will undertake including: refuse pits, a potential large building and a nearby child urn burial, and the cemetery adjacent to the settlement. In order to gain a better understanding of the overall settlement system of the region, we will also conduct survey work at the nearby Neolithic sites of Manan and Huiduipo.

Asia - Mongolia - Northern Mongolia Archaeology Project - 2016

Deadline
2016-03-18

A small interdisciplinary, international team of Mongolian and foreign researchers will be selected to conduct archaeological research (primarily excavation, but also survey and ethnoarchaeology). No experience necessary, but interest, a good attitude and reasonable physical fitness a must! Terrain and climate are challenging, and the location is VERY remote, so general preparedness essential. No credits offered, but will work with your home institution to arrange independent study credits if necessary. Research aims: Mongolia’s mobile pastoral economy is the foundation of the national identity and primary economic strategy, a lifeway made possible with the introduction of domesticates into the area from regions to the north and west. The archaeological site of Soyo, in the Darkhad Depression of northern Mongolia, has the potential to contribute significantly to understanding questions about the archaeological history of this region. Located at the intersection of the dense forest taiga and the grass steppe-land of the basin, Soyo is uniquely positioned to facilitate interaction between hunting and herding practices. Preliminary research at the Soyo site has revealed a unique depositional history where wind-blown sand has stratified thick artifact deposits creating a one of a kind, 7,000 year continuous record of human activity. Despite being such an important part of Mongolian heritage, this site is threatened by the development of a tourist camp. It is critical that an archaeological team conduct this research at the site in the summer of 2015 as the site is actively being threatened by this development.
