The Intensive Medieval Archaeology Course is divided into three blocks that are run simultaneously over a 3 weeks period:
Archaeological Research Techniques. In this block the student will be instructed on the entire research process, from preparation of the excavation project, through the excavation procedure and the later handling of materials.
Hands on Archaeology. We will carry out excavations at various medieval sites involved with ceramic production. This will allow students to see first hand the abundance of archaeological material from this period. The village of Faro was a potterymaker center from the middle ages untill today. Across different excavations we want to know the exact origin and the evolution of the main traditional pottery of the region.
Medieval Archaeology Theory Classes. The topic based classes will be conducted through guided visits to a number of archaeological sites and medieval monuments.
We will take a theoretical tour with specific on site visits that will cover former medieval cities, the evolution of fortifications, monasteries, mountain settlement, cathedrals, eremitism and medieval caves.
The guided visits will deal with some of the most important aspects of Medieval History in the north of Spain.
