Tipo de trabajo The volunteers will work on manual tasks, being part of an outdoors archaeological excavation and cutting branches and bushes around it to make it more accessible to visitors – either local or outsiders. A specialized archaeologist will coordinate all the work done by the volunteers.
Tema de estudio: Volunteers will get to know local history and territory through film projections, artistic activities, debates, etc. To deepen the contact between the volunteers and the territory, they will also participate on several activities of the village summer festival, a local food workshop and tours around the area.
Alojamiento: Volunteers will sleep in bunkbeds in the gymnasium of the local school, where they will have access to four showers and regular toilets. Both rooms and toilets/showers are divided by male and female. A cook will prepare dinners, but both breakfast and lunch need to be cooked by the volunteers and coordinator.
