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 credit.
For an introduction to the Field School, plan to attend the Poggio Colla Information Session on Thursday, October 23 at 4:45 in the Bonchek College House Great Room. Professor Ann Steiner and student participants from the 2014 Field School will report on the 2014 dig and will explain the application process. There will be a reception after the presentation.
Applications for the 2015 Field School will be distributed at the Info Session. The application will also be available in the Classics Department office.
