Portugal Field School Information Session

The Bagunte Project is a summer archaeological program directed by Dr. Mariah Wade. The program is hosted by the Town of Vila do Conde and its Archaeology Department. This seaside town of white sandy beaches was an important Roman outpost, which evolved into a fully modern city while still preserving its historical monuments and buildings. It also was an important monastic center during the Middle Ages and a major shipbuilding and trade center during the Age of Discoveries in the 15th century.

The Field Archaeology program gives students hands-on experience and contact with local artisans deeply involved in reviving ancient cultural traditions. The academic program will be complemented by lectures and guided excursions led by local academics and cultural experts.

Date of Field School: May 21 – July 7, 2018 (first summer session)

Future Info Session:

Wednesday November 15th 5:00 p.m.
