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.

Europe - Malta - Off The Beaten Track- Summer School for Anthropologists 2011

Deadline
2011-06-01

The Anthropology field school is held annually on the charming islet of Gozo, in the Maltese Archipelago. Gozo is one of the three inhabited main islands of the Maltese Archipelago (Malta, Gozo and Comino) and is right in the heart of the Mediterranean. Described as Europe’s best kept secret, Malta is surrounded by crystal clear waters, enjoys year-round sunshine and is the home of numerous cultural, artistic and natural treasures.

The Malta Summer School offers a unique opportunity to acquire some 'in the field' experience. The islands of Malta present a perfect balance of past and present: a fascinating legacy of European culture and rural Mediterranean traditions presented to the eye in the living history of its fishing villages. Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta possesses a typical island culture. As a result of its location, at the crossroads of maritime routes between Europe, Africa and Asia, Malta has always been strategically important. Many different cultures have set foot on the islands, leaving their unique imprints which are still visible to this very day. These foreign influences can be seen for instance in the Maltese language; an interesting fusion of Arabic and other romance languages. At the same time, Malta has a perfectly English-speaking population.

This facilitates accessibility for foreign researchers and acts as a perfect gateway for anthropologists. Possibilities for interesting field research abound and include a variety of architectural and religious sites as well as the study of tourism and ethnic relations.

The Summer School offers both budding Anthropologists and people more advanced in their Anthropological career alike a valuable opportunity to study the peoples of an island with 7,000 years of history.

The Malta Summer School is staffed with a renowned international faculty who will serve as the go-between for students and the islands inhabitants. They will also facilitate and monitor the progress of each project individually, so that they can best tailor their expertise to each student. The research participants pursue and write-up will be published.

This comprehensive 4-week practicum will focus on the continued excavation of an 18th century shipwreck. Discovered in 2009, excavations began on this wreck site during the summer of 2010. Artifacts recovered from this site indicate that it is a late 18th century wreck known as the Storm Wreck of unknown origin. Recent discoveries include hardware and rigging components, navigational and carpentry tools, a series of cast-iron and copper cauldrons, a small flintlock pistol and six cannon and the ship's bell. This summer’s activities will include mapping, recording and excavating an area adjacent to the 2010-2012 excavation units. Students will work alongside instructors to record and recover artifacts associated with this wreck.

North America - Vermont - LCMM Nautical Archaeology Field School - 2013

Deadline
2013-05-01

A professional-level field school experience is a critical component for any student pursuing a career in nautical archeology. This challenging program combines academic instruction with hands-on experiences and extensive opportunities for scientific diving.

Lake Champlain, situated between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks in New York, offers a stunningly beautiful setting that is steeped in history. The region played a critical role in the French and Indian War, Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812, and featured a dynamic commercial era with thousands of steamboats, schooners, sloops, and canal boats on its waters. The dramatic heritage of Lake Champlain has resulted in a unique archeological collection of approximately 300 shipwrecks, many of which are in an outstanding state of preservation. Our fieldwork will focus on a boat graveyard located off the shores of Burlington, Vermont. These sites include the 1880s schooner Excelsior, several nineteenth century sailing canal boats, a steam launch, and three wooden barges. These wrecks are located in 8 to 15 feet of clear, cold water - the ideal environment to develop underwater documentation skills. Students will complete a number of dives on the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve in addition to classroom work.
