Field School in Roman Pottery (Sangro Valley project) — Deadline March 7, 2014

A new Field School in Roman Pottery, associated with Oberlin College’s Sangro Valley project, is accepting applications for its session to be held from 3 July to 27 July 2013.

The program’s aim is first to introduce the participants to the study of Roman pottery and then for them to apply their knowledge under the guidance of the director and the assistant in processing the ceramic material from the Italian Superintendency’s excavations in the forum on Monte Pallano (Tornareccio, Abruzzo).

It is assumed that the participants will have some grounding in classical studies (and hopefully archaeology) but not specifically in pottery studies. The program is directed toward graduate students, as well as advanced undergraduates and practising archaeologists. The program is open to all citizens of any country with a sufficient knowledge of English, which will be the working language.
