Announcing the sixth season of the Vicus ad Martis Tudertium Archaeological field school in Umbria, Italy. Run by Drew University and directed by Prof. John Muccigrosso, this four-week program offers hands-on archaeological experience – and four credits – to college-age students. Non-students may also participate through the project’s Visitors program.
The excavation takes place at the site of the Roman town of the Vicus Martis Tudertium, located on the Flaminian Way, not far from the city of Todi. The 2013 season runs from June 9 – July 6 and in addition to daily work on the site includes short excursions to nearby sites, as well as an immersive experience in small-town life in modern Umbria.
