Dig Spotlight: Excavating a Roman City in Romania
A consortium and team from the University of Bucharest will be conducting archaeological excavations of underground aquaducts and other late Roman period (2nd to 6th Centuries A.D.) architecture near the village of Adamclisi, Romania, during the summer of 2006. Given the nature of the aquaducts and architectural evidence uncovered thus far, this Roman settlement in this one-time ancient province promises to reveal a city of sizable proportions, with very exciting finds to come. In addition, volunteer contributions for participation in the dig will go to support the educational community in the area, financially supporting the K-8 school in Adamclisi. The $1,100 fee covers food, accommodations, and transportation. Instructions and reading materials for this educational, skill-building experience are provided on-site.
