This is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to join an ongoing archaeological project and participate in all the aspects that an excavation implies.
ArchaeoSpain high school team will join the excavation of the Roman Forum of Pollentia, a Roman city in Mallorca island that was founded in the 1st century BC.
Our students will excavate and help uncover the complex layers of occupation in the Forum area that span from pre-Roman to medieval times.
