Colombia-Ciudad Perdida Field School


Colombia Ciudad Perdida

June 7 – July 9, 2015


The 2015 season will focus on excavations at three sites located less than half a mile away from Teyuna – Ciudad Perdida's core area – connected to it via a flagstone paved pathway (Sites G-1, G-2, and B-201). It is also highly probable that we may conduct survey work at a site located 2 miles upriver from Ciudad Perdida known as “Tigres”. Their role vis á vis the larger city is unclear, and thus excavation work is meant to complement architectural and spatial data gathered during the last field season. Targeted excavation is designed to aid us in understanding the construction sequence and function of these sites, which are to date, poorly understood. For more information visit the field school website.

 Connecticut College will award each student 8 semester credit units (12 quarter units). Tuition includes credit units, and room and board.
