June 9-July 11
Cinigiano, Tuscany, Italy
Since 2009, the Roman Peasant Project, has run a ground-breaking series of excavations on the lives of the rural poor. The first every systematic attempt to excavate and analyze the diet, architecture and lifeways of Roman peasants, the Project has exploded many the assumptions we have held about poverty, Roman agriculture and economies.
The Project is accepting applications for a limited number of spots for its 2015 field season, in which we’ll be excavating a small Roman farm. You’ll be trained in rescue-excavation methodology, hand and digital documentation and environmental material processing.
Logistics: Accommodation is in a local school; all meals provided. Participants need only provide their own transportation to Grosetto on June 8. Weekends free.
Deadline: March 30, 2014
