Central America - Mexico - Ethnohistory Field Program - 2014

Deadline
2014-06-02
The purpose of this field program is to introduce students to innovative research methods in the integration of archaeology, art history, ethnohistory, and ethnography. Mexico in general and the vast state of Oaxaca in particular create an ideal research environment, where the indigenous cultures constructed monumental sites, ruled over city-states, invented complex writing systems, and crafted among the finest artistic traditions in the world, some of which are still perpetuated to this day. The clash of the Indigenous and the European worlds in the 16th century created a most unique culture, the legacy of which underlies the modern nation of Mexico. By traveling through the mountains, valleys, and coasts of Oaxaca and immersing themselves in this rich study environment, students will gain direct experience with archaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic research methods and resources. In addition, the course aims to provide insights into the practicalities of conducting academic research in Mexico, by visiting research institutes and hearing on-site lectures from local experts. A broader question to be addressed is how new modes of inquiry in archaeology can reflect on approaches more consistent with the logic inherent in the scientific method. This interactive course will explore methods that avoid one-sided dependencies, and will link the past and present through the exploration of those surviving ancient sites and living communities which are directly referenced in the ethnohistorical records. Note that this Travel Study Program does not involve active participation in an archaeological dig.

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 - Croatia - Fieldwork In The Ancient City Of Epidaurum (Dubrovnik) - 2014

Europe - Croatia - Fieldwork In The Ancient City Of Epidaurum (Dubrovnik) - 2014

Deadline

The Sanisera Field School offers an annual archaeological dig on Epidaurum (Cavtat), a place located only 16 km from the spectacular city of Dubrovnik, capital of the Adriatic Sea.

This course is for students who come from all over the world to study abroad and who are interested in Roman cities and Classical archaeology.

The archaeological dig of Epidaurum is located in a stunning setting surrounded by the sea. Epidaurum, originally an Illyrian settlement, most likely gained status as a Roman colony during the reign of Augustus. It was an important port and transportation hub, the majority of the traffic coming from ships travelling the entire eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea.

The city developed rapidly due to its location, the easy communication thanks to the sea, and the well-established roads connected to internal regions. Although legend claims Slavs and Avars destroyed the city in the 7th century, and that the refugees of the ravaged city founded Dubrovnik, it is more likely that Epidaurum ceased to exist as a city and gradually declined before the invasion of Slavs and Avars on this region.

Fieldwork will focus on the excavation of a public building from the ancient city of Epidaurum, dated between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD. The Harris system will be followed in order to systematically dig all the sequence the site has. In the laboratory students will learn to classify all the artifacts found on the site, including Roman pottery, numismatics and faunal remains.

DIRECTED AT
This is the only course that The Sanisera Field School offers in Croatia. If you are thinking about participating as a volunteer for the first time in an archaeological field school, this course could be a good option for you. This course accommodates participants both with and without experience.

You will learn from the very beginning excavation technique and methodology. You will easily find classical archaeological remains from the Roman world such a pottery, amphora, coins, glass, etc. which you will learn to classify in the laboratory.

The experience gained on completion of this program will help you decide if archaeology is the area of research in which to center your studies and if you want to make anthropology your professional future.

The program takes place next to the Adriatic Sea, in a charming area next to the spectacular medieval city of Dubrovnik.

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

FIELD SCHOOL LIFE & LANGUAGE
The fieldwork focuses on Classical Archaeology, and specifically on Roman archaeology. It runs 7 hours a day, and it is divided between excavation, lab work, exercises, lectures and excursions.
