Training Excavation in Britain: Classical Studies
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.
