The Vitor Archaeological Project (VAP) is a comprehensive, longitudinal study of the lower Vitor Valley, approximately 40 kilometers west of the modern city of Arequipa (Peru). This is a multi- disciplinary project with strong field, textile analysis, bioarchaeological, and conservation components. In 2015, the VAP will continue excavations at the D-shaped temple. In addition to this field investigation, significant time will be dedicated to laboratory analysis of materials excavated from the temple and a Ramada cemetery excavated in 2012 and 2014. This analysis will include skeletal remains, ceramics, and textiles. 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.
