The Sanisera Field School: Classical Archaeology in Italy and Spain (2013)


This field school program, with a length of 20 days, will start in Spain. Students will meet in Menorca during the first day. Next and during the following days they will focus on the excavation in the ancient city of Sanisera, where they will work for 8 days. Students will receive an intensive introduction on basic aspects of field excavation techniques following the Harris Matrix. The fieldwork runs 7 hours per day, with time dedicated to excavation as well as laboratory work focused on Roman pottery. Courses are given in both English and Spanish.

On the 11th day of the course participants will fly to Rome, where they will stay for  6 days. During this time, students will carry out an archaeological tour around Rome in order to discover the Coliseum and its surroundings, Capitoline and Vatican Museums –including the Sistine chapel-, Pompeii city and the Christian basilicas in Trastevere.

Once students finish the archaeological tour in Rome, they will have two days off in order to enjoy their free time. On the 19th day of the course students will fly back to Menorca, from where they will go back home.
