2017 Field Season: July 15 to August 5
We are currently planning next summer's project and seeking qualified applicants for the 5th season of excavation at Caladinho in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Contact us for more information!
Previous fieldwork at Caladinho uncovered the remains of a fortified structure related to the Roman colonization of the region in the 1st century B.C.E. Caladinho is the first example of one of these small, fortified, rural structures to be systematically excavated in the Alentejo region. The primary goal of this project is the identification of the inhabitants, the chronology of the site's occupation, and its place within the larger regional context. This upcoming season of fieldwork will complete the excavation of the main structure and continue targeted archaeological reconnaissance of the remainder of the site.
Field school students will receive instruction in excavation techniques, the handling and processing of artifacts, and the
recording of exposed areas and features. No prior experience in archaeology is required. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Tuition is $1800 for the 3 week session, and includes room, board, and the cost of transportation within Portugal. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2017.
