Project Description:

The main objective of the course is to educate the participants on how to work upon multi-layered urban sites, which are more complex than rural sites. The activities will therefore mainly be carried out in the field, with the professors flanking the students during the excavation phase, as well as during the documentation and interpretation of the archaeological findings.

In particular, we plan to intervene upon an area characterised by a long-term presence. The training activities will also be accompanied by several hours of lectures in order to provide the students with an overview of the city of Roselle throughout its history and within the territorial context.

Several tutors will assist the professors throughout the duration of the course in order to facilitate the learning process.

The Summer School programme is primarily intended for foreign university students enrolled in humanities-related degree programmes.

Period(s) of Occupation: From Prehistory to Xth century AD.
