The Santa Susana Archaeological Project is seeking qualified applicants for its next season of fieldwork at the site of Santa Susana in the Alentejo region of Portugal.
This site, never before systematically excavated, holds a villa complex central to our understanding of the complex processes of settlement in the Western Roman Empire, and the post-depositional processes that shape our access to the ancient world. Preliminary work at the site suggests a rich artifact assemblage dating to the first century B.C.E through the fifth century C.E. In our first nine seasons, an intensive survey combined with initial excavation in the pars urbana led to promising results, emphasizing the critical need for continued investigation, conservation, and interpretation of the site. In our tenth season, we will continue this important work.
Field school students will receive instruction in surveying techniques, the handling and processing of artifacts, and the recording of exposed areas and features. No prior archaeological experience is necessary. Participants may attend for 2, 3, or 5 week sessions (June 2 - July 6): Session dates TBA. Tuition is $1200 for 2 weeks, $1800 for 3 weeks, or $2800 for 5 weeks and includes room, board, and the cost of transportation within Portugal. The deadline for applications is April 1st, 2024 - but please note that as in 2023, we anticipate a LARGE pool of applicants so please do apply early. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. International students are welcome.
Discounted tuition is available for qualified university students.
