The Poggio Colla Archaeological Field School gives students an opportunity for hands-on study of Etruscan material culture, excavation theory and techniques, survey, conservation, and the basic methodology of archaeological research. Participants earn 1.5 credits.
For an introduction to the Field School, plan to attend the Poggio Colla Information Session on Thursday, October 11, at 4:45 in the Ware College House Commons. Provost Ann Steiner and Professor Gretchen Meyers will report on the 2012 dig and will explain the application process. There will be a reception after the presentation.
Applications for the 2013 Field School will be distributed at the Info Session. The application is also available on eDisk, in the Classics Department’s Public folder.
