My name is Catalina Urquijo, I am writing to you as ArchaeoSpain director to let you know about our archaeological field opportunities for 2020. We believe they can be of great interest to your students.
ArchaeoSpain was created in 2001 to provide students from all over the world with the opportunity to engage in scientific research at important archaeological projects. We teach archaeology field methods through intense field practice, lab work and presentations in sites like Hadrian's Villa in Italy, Hellenistic Aigai in Greece or the medieval castle of Zorita in Spain. Two of these sites are in the UNESCO world heritage list and a third is in the nomination.
We provide our participants with all the basic skills they will need when facing their own excavations, and with the enriching experience of involving them in the daily life of a foreign country with a different language, culture and History.
- Zorita Castle. Archaeology and Osteology in central Spain
- Hadrian's Villa in Italy
- Pompeii the Archeology of Death Project in Italy
- The royal tombs of Aigai in northern Greece

Sincerely, Catalina Urquijo
