Europe - Greece - Astypalaia Bioanthropology Field School - 2015

Deadline
2015-02-28

This five week field school takes place on Astypalaia, a small, beautiful island in the Aegean Sea and part of the Dodecanese region in Greece. It is based on a unique archaeological site – the largest ancient children’s cemetery in the world, with at least 3000 children’s burials. In the field laboratory overlooking the sea, students learn the specialist skills required to excavate, record, identify, conserve, measure and catalogue the tiny bones and teeth of young children. This is one of the few sites in the world where children’s remains are abundant enough to provide such experience. Everyone carries out all the tasks required for each burial and so gains a useful range of experience for work on human remains.

The children’s cemetery is just below the modern town, which is on the site of the ancient Classical city of Astypalaia. The burials are in pots, mostly large amphorae previously used to transport the goods traded by the city. Their form suggests that they came from all over the Aegean between around 750 B.C. and A.D. 100.

Dates: Wednesday July 1 to Monday August 3, 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.

During the 17th century, Europe redefined itself spiritually, culturally and politically. The Early Modern period was born out of one of the greatest crises of the old world as European identity was reshaped at all levels. During our 2013 season, we uncovered a very unique phenomenon: the inside of the 17th century churches in the region of Odorheiu Secuiesc, in the heart of Transylvania (Romania), was suddenly dedicated almost exclusively to infant burials. The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with an intensive review of juvenile osteology and an overview of the ways in which this kind of unique information is interpreted by bioarchaeologists. During the workshop, participants will have the chance to study the growth and development of the human skeleton across various juvenile age cohorts, ranging from prenatal to preadult.
