Bronze Age settlement
The site of Aculontra is located in Gavignano, in Upper Corsica (Haute-Corse). It spreads over around 2000 m2. Three distinct archaeological entities have been identified: a medieval tower standing at its highest point, a cluster of 6 to 8 rectangular constructions thought to be protohistoric raised on the south slope of the massif and a statue-menhir that is no longer present.
The focus of the excavation is the protohistoric site which is situated on the southwest side, overlooking the Golu River. It includes at least six structures, of which four are lined up. Downhill and to the West, one or possibly two additional structures were almost entirely destroyed and reused during medieval or modern times. Constructions are of rectangular shape with right-angled quoins. A long side, which is regularised and cladded, always sits against the slope. Doors, even perhaps windows, are visible on the long sides. Walls are made with dry stone blocks of medium (30-50 cm) to very large size (up to 150 cm) with a random coursing. The angle stones are of parallelepiped shape. Elevations have been preserved up to a height of 3 m. The construction close to the summit is the only one to show double faced stone walls. In addition, the site includes several small rock shelters and some of them have revealed splinters of human skulls as surface finds.
The excavation will consist in archaeological surveys (planimetry, altimetry, sections) along with a limited stratigraphic exploration of one of the rectangular structures. The objective is to define the chronology and function of the site in a region (Castagniccia) where very little is known about the Bronze Age period.
Student in archaeology, 18 years old minimum, antitetaneous vaccination, 2 week participation minimum, accommodation (campsite and gite) and meals are covered by the excavation.

Summer 2016 is the final season of WARP, an interdisciplinary archaeological survey along the Inachos river, west of the city of Argos in southern Greece. This intensive pedestrian survey includes the known archaeological sites of the Classical polis of Orneai, Mycenaean chamber tombs, and fortifications of the Roman, Medieval, and Ottoman periods, as well as an extensive system of ancient roads and passes. Among the project’s aims are (a) to understand the settlement dynamics of Argos, an important center in virtually all periods of Greek history but whose hinterland is scarcely understood, and (b) to detect the networks that connected the micro-regions of the western Argolid to each other and to neighboring valleys in the northeastern Peloponnese. We seek undergraduate field walkers for this summer either as volunteers or as credit-earning field school students.
Participants stay on the beach in comfortable vacation apartments in the beautiful fishing village of Myloi on the Gulf of Argos. Saturday field trips include the major Bronze Age palace sites at Mycenae and Tiryns, the Classical sites of Nemea, Corinth, and Epidauros (where we also see a play in the ancient theater), and the Medieval fortress of Nauplio, as well as numerous local museums.
Dates: May 29 – July 10, 2016.
Deadline for Application: April 15, 2015 (This is a rolling deadline, which means that we process applications as we get them until the project fills and this may be before April 15, so apply early!).
Fee: $3750 (for volunteers); $4750 (in-state, CO)/$5750 (out-of-state) (for the six-credit field school). Fees include six-weeks of accommodation in Myloi, most meals and transportation during the project, and entrance to all sites and museums.

Call for participants – Summer fieldwork opportunities in Pompeii and on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius.
The Apolline Project is an open research network, which sheds light on the hitherto neglected past of the area to the north of Mt. Vesuvius, in the Bay of Naples. The project has run actively since 2004 and has several components, with current major work focusing on human skeletal remains from a Medieval church, excavation of a Roman villa with baths buried by multiple Vesuvian eruptions, and pottery from the Suburban Baths in Pompeii. We will also be starting a new excavation this summer at the Roman city of Aeclanum, in inland Campania; this excavation offers an excellent opportunity for students who want to see how a dig begins, from the ground up.
The Apolline Project is now accepting applications for its summer 2016 field season. Dig participants who join the first or last sessions of the Pollena excavation will have the opportunity to spend an additional week before (May 29- June 5) or after (Sept 24-Oct 1) their chosen session at the project’s accommodation for no additional charge in order to better explore the region (subject to availability).
This year we will be offering a select number of scholarships to participants.
