Summer School in Classical Archaeology

Daily Schedule

Lectures and field activities (survey, GPR lab, excavation) will take place daily, since Monday through Friday, between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, with an hour lunch break.

GIS and pottery laboratories will be held regularly in parallel with excavation. Such activities will be held at the staff’ discretion and will involve only small groups of students (4-5) at a time.

Excavation, laboratories and lectures will not be held on weekends; so the students will have the opportunity to enjoy their stay in Italy. Students are welcome to take sightseeing trips to other cities, provided that they inform the instructors of their whereabouts and return on time for regular excavation and lecture activities.

Laboratory activities will include cleaning, labeling, restoring, and analyzing skeletal remains and artifacts, as well as elaboration of photographs and GIS records.

At the end of the working day students will have time to shower and relax. Next appointment will be at 8 for dinner.


Here is the program that will scan all the moments of our day. Any changes will only be related to weather conditions (rain, etc.)..
