The Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy (www.umbra.org) is pleased to offer a new summer program in Archaeology based in Castiglione del Lago, a charming medieval town and renowned summer location situated in Umbria, along the southwestern shores of Lake Trasimeno, close to renowned historical cities, such as Orvieto, Perugia and Cortona.
Recent survey investigations of a large area off the medieval walls of Castiglione have indicated the presence of a rich archaeological site, possibly a Roman building and Etruscan tombs. The goal of the campaign is to assess the original function of the whole area, in order to understand the origins of the settlement of Castiglione.
