Roman Provincial Settlement Excavation and Survey – Life by the Imperial Roads
Location: Rapolt, Hunedoara County, Transylvania - Romania
Dates:
     Session 1: May 21 - June 10, 2017
     Session 2: June 11 - July 1, 2017
     Session 3: July 2 - July 22, 2017
E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org
Description: The project integrates Classical excavation approaches with various exploratory field techniques, ranging from STP (shovel test pits), geochemical soil analysis (phosphate spot testing), and surface field collection coupled with topographical total station assisted mapping. We will be looking at the transformation of the countryside in relation to the development of the Imperial road river infrastructure, and the role of our “palatial villa” in the development of a "creole" Roman landscape. Cost: US$ 1295 per session (program fees, equipment, room and board - see flyer for details).

 

Roman Villa Excavation – Identity and Wealth on the Roman Frontier
Location: Rapolt, Hunedoara County, Transylvania - Romania
Dates:
     Session 1: June 11 - July 1, 2017
     Session 2: July 2 - July 22, 2017
Session 3: July 23 – August 12, 2017
E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org
Description: The integrated results of our various field techniques have yielded extraordinary results: a rural built space of ca. one hectare, with massive fortification walls decorated with exterior frescoes, with richly built two stories buildings, containing exceptional artifacts (well preserved bronze statues, jewelry, pristine condition coins, writing implements, etc.). Our target excavation, the central building of the “villa” has already presented us with a very complex and surprising occupation sequence and practices. Cost: US$ 1295 per session (program fees, equipment, room and board - see flyer for details).

 

Applied Field Geophysics Workshop – Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Workshop
Location
: Rapolt, Hunedoara County, Transylvania - Romania
Dates: 3-day intensive GPR program, integrated with our field programs
E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org
Description: Our program offers intensive training in Ground Penetrating Radar exploration techniques, both field and laboratory analysis, as it applies to the anthropogenic transformation of a historical landscape, in this case, the hinterland of the “palatial villa” and associated structures, roads and land use. All participants registered to two field sessions of the above can participate to the Geophysics Workshop free of cost. Otherwise, cost: US$ 385 (program fees, equipment, full room and board).

 

Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Applications
Location: Odorhei, Harghita County, Transylvania - Romania
Dates: 3-day intensive GPR program, exploring a newly discovered site
E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org
Description: Our program builds on the intensive training in Ground Penetrating Radar exploration techniques provided during our Applied Field Geophysics Workshop (prerequisite), focusing on advanced data collection and analysis. The workshop consists of a brand new GPR mapping project on a lost medieval church and its associated cemetery near Odorhei. It is the perfect site for advanced GPR training: it has everything - walls, floors, at least one crypt, destruction levels, graves, complex cross-cutting relationships. Cost: US$ 385 (program fees, equipment, full room and board)
