Session 1: June 9 – June 29, 2019
Session 2: June 30 – July 20, 2019
Team Size: 15-20 participants per session
Description: The integrated results of our various field techniques have yielded extraordinary results: a rural built space of almost one hectare, with massive fortification walls decorated with exterior frescoes, richly built two stories buildings, containing exceptional artifacts (well preserved bronze statues, jewelry, pristine condition coins, writing implements, etc.). Our target excavation, the central building of the “villa” has already presented us with a very complex and surprising occupation sequence and practices. We will continue to explore the way identity is built and negotiated in a very dynamic and rich frontier environment, as well as the development of a “creole” Roman landscape.
Cost: US$ 1395 per session ( includes program fees, lectures, equipment, room and board – see flyer for details; ; not included: travel to and from Rapolt, medical insurance) ).
