ArchaeoSpain Offers Field School Opportunities

ArchaeoSpain was created in 2001 by a group of archaeologists and educators to provide opportunities for people from all over the world to engage in scientific research at important archaeological projects in Spain and Italy. To date, nearly 500 people from 17 countries have joined our programs.

This summer we are joining Spanish crews at four excavations:

* The Celtic-Iron Age Necropolis of Pintia (Valladolid, Spain)
* The Byzantine Basilica of Son Pereto (Mallorca, Spain)
* The Amphora Graveyard of Monte Testaccio (Rome, Italy)
* The Iron Age Cemetery of Son Real (Mallorca, Spain)

We also offer two fieldschools for high school students ages 16 and 17:

* The Roman Forum of Pollentia (Mallorca, Spain)
* The Visigothic city of Recopolis (Guadalajara, Spain)

Participants at each site will be led by bilingual archaeologists to teach excavation techniques and artifact conservation. We also hold seminars and workshops, and go on excursions to nearby historical and cultural sites. No experience or Spanish is required.
