Training Excavation in Britain: Classical Studies 335
The 'Lunt' Fort at Baginton, Warwickshire
August, 2001

The Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies at the University of British Columbia will conduct a training excavation in July/ August 2001 at the 'Lunt', a Roman fort in central England, first built under Nero (in approx. 60 AD) in connection with the revolt of Boadicea. Excavation began in the 1960's, and in 1988 UBC began work on the western defences. The site is well-known for the reconstruction of areas where excavation is completed, including part of the eastern rampart and gateway, granary (now the site museum) and gyrus (cavalry training enclosure). Students are trained in all aspects of excavation, and subject to satisfactory performance obtain six credits for Classical Studies 335, equivalent to one full-year course. Students from other universities may take the course for transfer credit. There are no prerequisites. The practicum will last for four weeks, from July 30-August 24. There will be a number of free days. Visiting lecturers will come to the site, and excursions to other places of interest will be organized at moderate cost. Baginton is located near Coventry (direct bus service to London Airports), very close to Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon and the Cotswolds. Accommodation is at the University of Warwick (two miles from the site) in five-person flats with private bedrooms and self-catering facilities. The campus offers extensive eating and entertainment facilities. Costs: students make their own travel arrangements to Britain and register at UBC with the appropriate fee. A charge of 370 pounds covers the cost of accommodation, local staff, excavation fees, daily transportation and refreshments on the site for the whole period. A deposit of $100 (made out to 'A.A. Barrett') is required. Early registration is recommended. In the event of cancellation, the deposit is refunded if the place is filled. For further details: Anthony A. Barrett, Department of Classical, NE and Religious Studies, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. V6T 1Z1 Tel: (6O4) 822-4O64 (office), 228-8991 (home), Fax: (604) 822-9431.
