Europe - Bulgaria - The Illindentsi Field School - 2015

Deadline

During the seventh millenium BC, the Balkan Peninsula was a gateway through which farming, animal husbandry and generally Neolithisation spread from Anatolia and the Near East to Europe, including the site of Ilindentsi. During the previous seasons archaeologists unearthed remains of Early and Middle Neolithic settlement structures and features. Among them are several unique dwellings, of Anatolian origin. Humans likely entered Europe due to complex and varied reasons: increased population, limited environmental resources, climate change etc. Research at Ilindentsi aims to seek more nuanced patterns that will shed light on migration routes and reasons for European Neolithisation. More site-specific questions concern the continuity/discontinuity of habitation, boarders of the settlement through time and the function and the range of fortifications. This field school runs from June 13 – July 27, 2015.

Europe - Ireland - Irish Archaeology Field School BLACK FRIARY - 2015

Deadline
2015-04-24

The Irish Archaeological Field School 2015 summer research programme will focus on archaeological excavations in Co. Meath, Ireland; excavations will be undertaken at the Black Friary (Trim) from 18th May to 14th August 2015.

The Black Friary was once an influential and thriving religious house in the then Anglo-Norman governing seat in Ireland. The site was almost completely razed to the ground as a result of Henry VIII’s Act of Dissolution, however ongoing investigation is slowly revealing the extent of the survival of the below ground remains including cemeteries and later unsanctioned burials. This greatly adds to our understanding of the significance of this site both during is lifetime as a friary, and the use of the site by the native populations following its destruction.

While much work has been carried out to date, we are only at the tip or the ‘archaeological iceberg’. Plans for the upcoming season include expanding on the excavation area to the north of the limits of the known buildings to explore the northern range where a potential second or outer precinct may be present, and to further explore the use of the site by the local Catholic population as an expression of native resistance in Post-Dissolution Ireland.

Students are invited to apply to the school to undertake a number of field archaeology courses including Introduction to Field Archaeology, Advanced Methods in Field Archaeology and Introduction to Bioarchaeology. Credit courses are available through our partner the Institute of Field Research.
