Europe - Italy - Exceptional underwater site, The Portus Iulius

Europe - Italy - Exceptional underwater site, The Portus Iulius

Deadline
This underwater archaeology course consists of studying the submerged archaeological remains of Portus Iulius of the Baia Underwater Park.

The Underwater Pompeii site is located in the bay of Naples and is managed by Baia Underwater Park. Underwater surveys show that Roman buildings are about 400 meters away from the present coastline, at a depth of approximately 9 meters. Underwater and aerial surveys have shown numerous submerged archaeological remains. Evidence of the submersion of the coast can be found in the ruins of the Temple of Venus, which today is about 3 meters below the quay of the port. Nearby, on the other side of the bay, two monumental complexes were also found: a villa belonging to the Pisoni family and a bath complex with a nymphaeum.

Another submerged archaeological site that participants will study is Portus Iulius, a port which sank during Roman times. It was built in 37 B.C. by Agrippa and Octavian, and was abandoned in 12 B.C., merely 25 years after its extremely expensive construction. Later on, it was submerged due to several ground movements –Bradyseism- and volcanic activities including Vesuvius. The coast’s unique atmosphere even attracted emperors. For instance, Caligula celebrated his elevation to divinity by building a pontoon crossing the area, which he then rode over wearing the armor of Alexander. Emperor Claudius often visited Baia. Nero was so fond of this place that he ended up conceiving grandiose projects there, one of them being conveying all spa waters into a large basin intended to link Miseno with the Averno.

In 2006 the Baia Underwater Archaeological Park was created, the first of its kind in Italy. Because of this project we can visit these magnificent ancient ruins.

The uniqueness of the archaeology in Naples Bay, both on land and underwater, has made this site famous worldwide.

There will be a minimum of 8 inmersions focusing on the recognition of structures and archaeological remains in Portus Iulius to make a detailed map of the Roman port infrastructure and analyze the spatial distribution of all objects we will find underwater.

Students will also attend lectures on Roman History, Roman Amphorae, Ancients Ports and methods on archaeological survey.

DIRECTED AT
Participating in this course is a unique opportunity. Portus Iulius was the quintessential port of Rome in the period of greatest splendor of their empire. We absolutely recommend this program to any college student who wants to enter in the field of underwater archeology. Portus Iulius is an underwater site with lots of submerged remains for you to be able to recognize Roman architecture and urban planning (walls, floors, rooms, canals, roads ...) and learn how to draw through 8 dives with the help of surveying instruments. They say an image is worth more than a thousand words. You can view it from Google Earth and recognize its wide expanse that is three times higher than Pompeii. You will also know how to use survey techniques used to record and document all types of archaeological materials displayed on the seabed: pottery, amphorae, glass, building materials such as marble, stucco reliefs, fragments of sculpture,...

After finishing this course, the training and experience gained will help you to decide if underwater archaeology is the area of research that you wish to focus on or if you want to continue on with underwater archaeology as a future profession.

You will have also visited the most iconic and remarkable Roman underwater archaeological sites in the Mediterranean.

Previous knowledge or experience in archaeology or computer systems is not required.

FIELD SCHOOL LIFE AND LANGUAGE
The field school course has a length of 10 days. The course runs six hours per day, and is divided between survey dives, exercises, lectures and excursions. Participants will also visit the Roman ruins of the city of Pompeii. Students receive an intensive introduction on basic aspects of the survey method in underwater archaeology to document archaeological pieces from the seabed of Portus Iulius, and learn how to draw the architectural map of the port structure. The last two days of the program are free days for the students.
The course is taught in English, Spanish and Italian.

In the 4th century CE, Stobi became an important Christian center and the seat of powerful bishops. From June 27 – July 25, the 2015 field season, students will focus on the most representative, residential building in Stobi – the Theodossian Palace. Work on the palace will continue and efforts made to investigate the space between the palace and an adjacent building – now called “the Jail” as numerous human remains with their hands tied were found there. The temporal and architectural relationships between the two buildings are unclear and this season will be dedicated to exploring their important issue and the architectural history of Stobi. Students will be exposed to important topics concerning the context of this archaeological site – History and Archaeology of Copper Age in Europe, Warfare in Prehistory, Chalcolithic architecture, pottery and tools.
