Fieldwork opportunity: Crustumerium 2010

A.J. Nijboer writes to the Italian-Archaeology mailing list:

Since 2006 the Groningen Institute of Archaeology (GIA) excavates in the summer at Crustumerium, on the outskirts of present Rome, in collaboration with the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma (SSBAR; Dr. F. di Gennaro).

This summer we will be at Crustumerium from June 29 till July 24. We intend to excavate amongst others a cluster of tombs, a chamber tomb and some other burials. So far, we have a small team of Dutch, Italian and English students. Daily supervisors will be Albert Nijboer and Sarah Willemsen.

There are 4 to 5 vacancies for archaeology students with some experience in archaeological fieldwork in Italy. Costs for students are travelling expenses and a contribution towards the living expenses (ca. 50 euro per week). We invite those interested to participate from June 29 till July 24, to send an application to:
A.J.Nijboer [at]
S.L.Willemsen [at]

The application implies a letter stating your interest in the excavations at Crustumerium and a CV. Once accepted you receive further information on arrangements and excavation.

Information on Crustumerium and our research can be found on:
The third link to the Finnish Institute at Rome has quite a number of preliminary reports on the work carried out at Crustumerium so far...
