Archaeology Field School Description


For those seeking experience in archaeological fieldwork, the Apolline Project in the Campania region of Italy is now welcoming applications from students of all levels to participate in a major Roman dig. The site of Pollena Trocchia centres on a post-AD 79 bathhouse which seems likely to be part of a larger villa complex. The nearby sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum have made the powers of preservation of volcanic eruptions famous and Pollena Trocchia is another demonstration of this. The various eruptions down the centuries have helped archaeologists piece together a clear chronology; periods of habitation are interrupted by volcanic deposits that are often metres in depth. A diverse range of finds have been excavated and those participants with a special interest in human remains, ceramics, architecture, building materials and paleobotany will likely be well catered for.

The excavation runs from September 2-27 and participants must stay for a minimum of two weeks but there is no maximum; you are free to stay for the entire duration of the excavation if you so choose. The fees are 300EUR (roughly 260GBP or 400USD) for 2 weeks and 500EUR for 4 weeks. This includes all tuition and accommodation irrespective of your length of stay. The deadline for applications is August 15th and those who apply will find out if they have been successful within two days of their application. Further details can be found on our website at http://www.apollineproject.org/dig.html and the application form athttp://www.apollineproject.org/academics/application-form.php
