Lab1000

The main aim of fieldwork is that of approaching the talayotic culture to students through different tasks related to an archaeological excavation.

 

 

 

 

Fieldwork will be combined with lab work, lectures, workshops as well as excursions to discover the natural environment of an island which was declared Reserve of the Biosphere by the UNESCO in 1991.

2017 courses will take place in several sessions with a length of 2 weeks each. During the course, students will dig in the settlement’s sanctuary during the first half of the day, whereas the second part will be devoted to lectures, laboratory tasks and workshops.
