The Caladinho Archaeological Project is seeking qualified applicants for its 10th season of excavation at the site of Caladinho, Portugal. Last summer, our team uncovered the remains of a fortified structure related to the Roman colonization of the region in the 1st century B.C.E. 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 and surveying techniques, the handling and processing of artifacts, and the drawing of exposed areas and features.
Tuition is $1800 for 3 weeks, and includes room, board (on weekdays), and the cost of transportation within Portugal. Participants are responsible for their own plane tickets to and from Lisbon. More information about the field school program and life on the project can be found on our Field School page.
Student tuition is the primary source of funding for this project. All payments made to the project go towards the conservation of the site and artifacts, accommodations for the crew, and funding for specialist analyses.
