ROMARCH: Roman-period Archaeological Field School in Umbria: Vicus ad Martis 2014

Two students on site.

Announcing the seventh 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 2014 season runs from June 8 – July 5 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.

We’ll concentrate this year on an area behind the church of S. Maria where we have been working on uncovering a large apsidal structure apparently resting on top of another, earlier building.
