The archaeological company Arkeos, in collaboration with the Superintendency for Cultural Heritage and Environment of Enna, Sicily, and with the municipal councils of Pietraperzia and Villarosa, is organizing the Second International Summer School 2013 called Archaeology in central Sicily: the prehistory of the Erei. It will offer the chance for students and other enthusiasts to participate in archaeological investigations into two of the most important prehistoric settlements recently discovered in central Sicily. It is expected that there will be a range of Italian and international students and others taking part.
Led by a team of experts with much experience in Sicily and beyond, participants will have the opportunity to learn and to practise the most recent techniques of stratigraphic excavation and survey. The Summer School will also include participating in the laboratory activities of cataloguing, recording and digitizing of the prehistoric archaeological materials and all the relevant data collected during the excavations. During the course of the fieldwork members will also be able to attend a series of lectures given by leading archaeologists and other experts on important issues related to the methodological and practical aspects of the archaeology and prehistory of Sicily.
