Project Description:

The LdM-CAMNES Archaeology Field School in Tuscania is an incredible journey in an inspiring environment, where students are guided by a team of professional archaeologists and work side by side with Italian university students, taking part in a real excavation, digging and uncovering 2500-year-old Etruscan artifacts.

Period(s) of Occupation: The archaeological area of Tuscania is composed by several Etruscan necropolises distributed all around the modern town. LdM started to investigate two newly discovered “cities of the dead ”, in 2005, with the support of CAMNES since 2011. The project then proceeded in 2020 to explore a new necropolis, Sasso Pinzuto, starting from 2021 in partnership with the University of Naples Federico II. Sasso Pinzuto covers a very large area where hundreds of tombs have been discovered in the past. The archaeological project focuses on a series of tombs belonging to the 6th century BCE, directly excavated in the tufa rock.
