Project Description


Summer Session

Archaeological Field School in Italy

In operation since 2012, is a Rutgers Study Abroad summer program that teaches undergraduate and graduate students archaeological field skills and methods. Among these are: excavation techniques; site recording and management skills; the handling, processing, and preserving of site materials, such as mosaics, painted wall plaster, pottery, human remains, and other small finds. Student participants will acquire this training by doing these things on site in Italy under the supervision of academic and professional field specialists. To learn more, email:
