Archeology and Heritage. Recovering Muro’s heritage (Mallorca)
Description: Volunteers will participate in an archaeological camp which forms part of a wider project aiming to use archaeology and local history to preserve and promote heritage and culture to the local community and to international volunteers.
Type of Work: Clearing and cleaning of accumulated materials on the remains of the site and the archaeological digging of a place. This action is aimed at extending the information available on the site and making the site accessible for the visitor.
It also includes moving rocks and cutting shrubs for the opening of paths that facilitate access. The field is framed within a wider project for the enhancement of the historical heritage of the city and will be carried out under the continuous supervision of an archaeologist.
It will be from 8 am to 2:30 pm and some afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.
All the work that will be done is physical work.
Study Theme: The archaeological heritage and its use as a social cohesion of the community. Some guided tours for volunteers will be used to discuss these aspects that will be worked day by day in the field.
Accommodation: The municipal building has several rooms that will be equipped as shared rooms and relationship spaces, dining room etc.
The City Council will arrange for the preparation of food (lunch and dinner) for volunteers. The volunteers will have to prepare breakfast in the municipal building where they will remain and the coordinator must make a purchase for breakfast.
You need to bring a sleeping bag.
Requirements: Motivation letter is required. No archaeological experience is required, but any prior knowledge is welcome.
Please bring a sleeping bag.

Notes: The local organization makes a big effort to make volunteers involved on the local culture, so there are several activities planned with that goal: cultural tours, visits to natural sites, a traditional dance workshop (Ball de bot) in Muro, etc.
