Archeology in Castro S João das Arribas
Description: Even though the São João das Arribas Hillfort was declared National Monument in 1910, little is known about its occupation – oral tradition and some superficial findings point to the presence of Iron Age peoples and the Roman Empire, but they are far from ensuring a scientific take. Thus, for the second time, Palombar joins forces with Mónica Salgado, director of the excavation, to make an archaeological survey on site.
Type of Work: The volunteers will perform the following tasks: clearing the excavation area; archaeological survey on the area surrounding the São João das Arribas Hillfort; excavation, earth removal and gathering of archaeological remains; washing of archaeological remains; introduction and awareness-raising to the notion of archaeological remains. As for leisure activities, they will : visiting the Miranda Donkey Breed Centre, in Atenor; visit the Centro de Interpretação dos Pombais Tradicionais (CIPT), in Uva; hiking and birdwatching; visiting Fraga do Puio and the Terra Mater ecomuseum; visiting Miranda do Douro and its Terra de Miranda Museum, among others. Throughout the entire workcamp, informal educational activities will be developed
Accommodation: Volunteers will be split between indoor (bedroom equipped with bunk beds) and outdoor (spacious tents) accommodation. All other facilities will be made available to them: electricity, hot water, shower, WC, kitchen and dining room. Meals will be prepared by all the volunteers, taking turns, yet always accompanied by a cook. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks, dinner, and night snacks will be prov
