Further information on type of accommodation, etc. can be found here.
It may also be possible to gain academic credit for attending the field school (20 credits/10 ECTS for at least 4 weeks attendance and 40 credits/20 ECTS for full 8 weeks attendance). The additional accreditation costs need to be covered by the student. To enquire about prices and conditions, please contact co-director Katharina Moeller (


  • The field school accepts participants of any age. However, if you are under 18 we can only accept you if accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • NO prior experience is needed.
  • Since archaeological field work can be physically exhausting, participants should be reasonably fit.
  • You will be expected to fully take part in the excavation, e.g. work from 9:00 till 17:00 Monday through Friday. For students who need accreditation this also includes field trips and evening lectures on Sundays.


Please bear in mind that your place on the Field School is not guaranteed until your payment has been received. Any confirmation letter you may have received is only provisional until you have paid your fees in full through the University’s online shop.

Payment has to be received 1 month after your placement has been confirmed at the latest, but at least 14 days before you plan to arrive on site. If payment has not been received by this date, we will assume you will not attend the Field School and allocate your place to someone else.
