Middle Valley History
Reports Archive Publications
Since its inception in 1999 the Sangro Valley Project has included a Field School and considers the training of both graduate and undergraduate students in the latest archeological and technological methodologies to be part of its essential mission. The four-week Field School enrolls up to twenty undergraduate students annually, the majority drawn from Oberlin College and Oxford University (with occasional undergraduate and graduate students from other US and UK as well as Italian universities). These students are mainly archaeology, anthropology, and classical language or history majors. Italian secondary school children from Tornareccio and Atessa also participate as volunteers on the excavation.
The Sangro Valley Project bases itself in Tornareccio, the town closest to its excavation sites. Through the kindness of the local government, the project uses the elementary school as its headquarters with its classrooms housing the laboratory and computer facilities, and outdoor areas for artifact processing. There are dormitory-style accommodations for students in Tornareccio's middle school's classrooms.
The 2014 Field School will be held from 4 July - 30 July 2014. For information, please contact: Susan Kane (firstname.lastname@example.org), Oberlin College.
