Archaeological Field School at Antiochia ad CragumBe part of a full-scale research and archaeological project while earning UNL credit in Art History! The Antiochia ad Cragum Archaeological Research Project (ACARP) announces its third archaeological field school for the summer of 2013. Antiochia ad Cragum is located on the south-central coast of Turkey in ancient Rough Cilicia.
The Project is currently excavating a third-century AD Imperial (?) temple, a colonnaded street, and a major bath complex that includes a large mosaic. In 2013 we plan to begin work on the city’s marketplace.
Participants in the field school will learn comprehensive archaeological methods, including excavation and recording, mapping, surveying, object photography, and basic conservation techniques.
Additional opportunities for field trips include: nearby archaeological sites, such as Selinus, Lamos, Perge, Aspendos, and the Alanya Museum.
