Early Christian Basilica of Sanisera (Spain)

April 12 – October 27, 2024

Uncovering Early Spanish Christianity

In 2008 Sanisera Archaeology Institute for International Field Schools started its courses at the Roman city of Sanisera. During all these years many students have come from all over the world to study abroad to Menorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) to dig up the Roman remains located at this classical site on the Northern coast of the island. The research is focused on the archaeological excavation of Sanisera and it studies what happened in this Roman port connected to the maritime traffic that sailed the Mediterranean during those times.

The training provided in this course and the experience you can acquire can strengthen you if you are thinking about archaeology in a professional level. If you are contemplating being a volunteer in an archaeology field school for the first time, this course could be right for you. This program accommodates participants with or without previous experience and teaches beginning excavation techniques and methodologies. During the excavation, you will find archaeological remains from the classical period including Roman pottery, amphorae, glass, etc. that you will learn how to identify in the laboratory. The comprehensive experience that you will gain in this course will help you to decide if you want to pursue archaeology in university or as a profession.

The course is limited to 14 participants per session. Reservations are only effective when payment of the registration fee is received. If for any reason the course is canceled, payment is returned according to the field school refund policy.
