Europe - Spain - Cova Gran Field School - 2016

Deadline
2016-04-22

The ability to quickly and efficiently adapt to diverse landscapes allowed humans to spread throughout the world during the Paleolithic period. In the Old World, such ability enabled early humans to replace Neanderthals (and likely H. denisovans) in diverse environment, including the Southern Pyrenees. How such replacement took place and what where the technological and social advantaged early human brought to the region is still poorly understood. Through excavations at Cova Gran de Santa Linya – a large rock shelter located at the seam between the first range of the southern Pyrenees and the Ebro Basin – students will explore these very questions. The cave is rich with evidence of human occupation dating to at least as early as 50,000 years ago and continuing through the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. This program will combine lectures, field survey, excavation and laboratory training. The long human occupation sequence at Cova Gran will provide students with the rare opportunity to explore and document an extensive cultural sequence of the region.

This course is divided in two parts. In this way, students can learn and experiment in both archaeological digs, developed in the land site: Digging in the Roman city and Biological Anthropology in the tombs of Sanisera.

PART 1. DIGGING IN SANISERA
In the area which is under archaeological excavation, an ecclesiastical complex has been found, which dates from the 4th and 6th centuries AD. It includes an Early Christian basilica.

Rome adopted Christianity as its official religion in the 4th century AD. From that time onwards, Christian basilicas started been built all over the Empire.

Participants will receive an intensive introduction to basic aspects of field excavation techniques following the Harris Matrix. In the laboratory students will learn to classify all the artifacts found on site, including Roman pottery, numismatics and faunal remains.

Time dedicated to this part of the program: 50%.

PART 2. BIOARCHAEOLOGY IN THE NECROPOLIS OF SANISERA
Death in Rome has been studied in Sanisera since we started digging the first necropolis in 2008. So far we have excavated 72 tombs belonging to a Roman cemetery which could have been related to a basilica in the Roman city if Sanisera, which dates from the 4th and 6th centuries AD.

The Osteology corpus in this necropolis includes more than 270 individuals. The fieldwork focuses on funerary structures, specifically inhumation graves.

Participants will learn and apply excavation techniques used in biological anthropology when excavating tombs. Students will also participate in lectures on skeletal anatomy and pathologies, classes, exercises and excursions related to the course material. In the laboratory participants will be instructed by an anthropologist and other archaeologists in the classification, study, and conservation of human remains and other related materials found.
