Excavating an Etruscan Necropolis (City of the Dead) of the III-II cent. BCE
The CAMNES / Lorenzo de’ Medici - Tuscania Archaeology Field School is a four-week intensive learning course in ancient Mediterranean archaeology. The program is held from July 3rd to August 1st (4 weeks, 6 credits) and offers students a unique combination of on-site fieldwork and specialized academic instruction by an expert team of archaeologists and art historians. As the program centres in Etruria, there will also be visits to major Etruscan museums and open-air sites.
Together with Italian students from the University of Florence and other universities, participants in the Field School will be given the chance to learn basic archaeological techniques in the ongoing excavation and preservation of an Etruscan site sponsored by CAMNES and Lorenzo de’ Medici. The July program will focus on the comprehensive analysis of one part of the entire territory occupied by the Etruscans, that is southern Etruria. Through this course, students will explore both the artistic production and material culture of Tuscany’s Etruscans, examining in detail the many diverse aspects of their society, including its political organization, religion and religious ceremony, economy and everyday life.
