Students will be advised on field excavation techniques, which they will apply at the site under the instructor’s supervision. Students are expected to keep careful excavation notebooks according to the procedures and the forms specified by the project (30 % of the final grade). The supervisors will also appraise the students’ progress and achievement (30 %). Participants in the course will also be asked to present a final report containing a general evaluation and analysis of the relationship of their excavation area/s to the rest of the excavation field and of the site as a whole (40 %).
Participants are encouraged to seek outside funding sources. Please check the awards offered by other institutions such as the Etruscan Foundation (http://www.etruscanfoundation.org/programs_fieldwork_fellowship.htm) and the American Institute of Archaeology (http://www.archaeological.org/grants/708). Please note that you have to be a member to apply.
