Our workshop aims at bringing the Daco-Roman material synthesis in the Transylvanian Provinces to life. It is an archaeological program that is meant to be both experimental and experiential. In the heart of the largest open air ethnographic museum in Europe, we bring together archaeologists and master craftsmen in order to recreate actual objects found in excavations, using Late Iron Age, Imperial Roman and medieval techniques and technologies. At the same time, all our participants will experience life in its traditional forms, working the ovens and the forges, building Late Iron Age workshops and houses, making ceramics using different technologies and learning all about architectural wood work. Students and participants will make the intellectual and phenomenological journey from the academic, to the experiment and to the experiential, in the fields of pyrotechnologies, domestic crafts, and finally traditional, medieval building techniques and architecture. As a result of the immersion in a museum ethnographic environment, our participants will explore as well questions of conservation, restoration and presentation of ethnographic and historical ceramic, metal and wooden artifacts and architecture.

South America - Brazil - Claudio Cutiao Field School - 2016

Deadline
2016-04-22

On this unique field school students can join the Amazonian Interfluvial Archaeological Project in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil to explore human occupation in a little known ecoregion of the Amazon. Travel the beaten path into the depths of the amazon to establish an archaeological understanding of the area as well as a cultural relationship between amazon boundaries. The 2016 field season will involve mapping and excavation at the archaeological site of Claudio Cutião. Our primary research objective for this season is to determine the site boundaries and its internal variability. Due to the perishable nature of building materials in the Amazon, there are no visible architectural features on the surface or below. But local soils have been enriched by organic waste and human actions and created distinct phenomena called ‘terra preta’ (‘black earth’) soils. We will examine site organization based on variations in these 'terra preta' soils as well as the distribution of artifacts.
