Menorca - Balearic Islands - Spain - Archeological Field Course Torre de'n Galmés - 2014

Deadline

Menorca is the northernmost island in the Balearic archipelago and is located
right in the middle of the western Mediterranean. Due to its small size, about 700 km2, and a very old orography, it's a fairly flat island. The highest elevation above sea level is the mountain of "El Toro" with its 356m.

However, the territory has been populated intensively since the arrival of humans on the island and its more than 1800 documented archaeological sites bear witness to several civilizations. The prehistoric settlement of Torre d'en Galmés, which is 6 hectares in size, is the most significant site on the island.
Precisely this site has hosted the Archaeological Field School that our
association has been conducting since 1991.

Our project involves excavation at the site of the talaiotic house known as the
"Cercle 7" and its surrounding area." It corresponds to a habitat structure
belonging to the Talaiotic culture of Menorca, with the regular layout of these prehistoric settlements: circular ground plan houses, the so-called circles because of their external appearance, with a south-facing façade and adjoining rooms (dormitories, fire hearths, storerooms) arranged around a central courtyard where most of the social and daily activities took place.

We have been excavating the front yard situated in front of the façade of the
"Cercle 7" house since 2011. Our aim is to document possible structures in the
abovementioned courtyard and to try to relate it to the differentiated areas in
the house.

Students will spend six weeks at Tell el-Amarna, Egypt, the once great capital city of Egypt located halfway between Cairo and Luxor. Students will explore the well-preserved ruins of this great city and receive hands-on experience using non-invasive archaeological techniques including surface survey and near-surface geophysical prospection. Work will concentrate on the North City, where they will map buried archaeological features using magnetometry and ground-penetrating radar.
