Archaeological Field School

Vultur Archaeological Field School, Italy, July 15-August 24, 2013

The Vultur Archaeological project is dedicated to the preservation of
cultural heritage and offers students the opportunity to study and travel
in Italy. This year, we have teamed up with the University of Alberta, and
are offering two streams for the summer school.
Students will be exposed to many aspects of archaeology, including the
excavation and restoration of a late Roman villa, archaeological survey of
the Vultur region in Northern Basilicata, and how to process, analyze, and
draw artifacts. Please note that no academic credit is given.
Cost: €1500 for 6 weeks. Includes dormitory style lodgings, and all meals
on workdays. Please check out our websites for more info:

We are also offering a History Summer School through the University of
Alberta (August 4-25, 2013). This 3-week, 6-credit course studies the
transition from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages in Basilicata. The
course will be about equally divided between in-class work, excursions to
major monuments and museums, and first-hand experience with the various
aspects of local archaeological research. Cost includes 6-credits at the
University of Alberta, lessons, transportation in Italy, entrance fees,
dormitory style lodgings, and all meals on workdays. Cost: $3036.97 CDN
for 3 weeks, $5646.73 for International Students. Please click here:
