I currently co-direct two archaeological projects in Portugal. The first, Caladinho, focuses on the systematic excavation of a 1st c. B.C.E. tower enclosure in the Alto Alentejo region. The excavation is conducted as a field school open to students from the United States, Canada, Britain, Portugal, and beyond. So far, roughly three dozen students from around twenty universities have participated in this project. Students are essential for this project, and they are involved in all aspects of the fieldwork and receive training in excavation, recording, and analysis of archaeological finds. The second project is currently planning for the 2014 season at the Igreja da Santa Susana, Portugal. Like Caladinho, we hope to involve dozens of students in the project over the coming years.
The Caladinho Archaeological Project is now accepting applications for the 2014 field season. Please visit Caladinho.com
The Santa Susana Archaeological Project is also accepting applications for its second seasons of fieldwork. For more information, please visit online at SantaSusanaProject.com and PortAnta.com.
Both of these projects are supported by the PortAnta Archaeological Cooperative and have ongoing excavation permits granted by IGESPAR.
