Frankrijk | Restauratie en archeologie
Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratie en archeologieproject.
Het project duurt van 6 t/m 27 juli.
Like the five previous workcamps, you will be restoring a part of the archeological site: weeding and restoring the low walls using traditional masonry, setting up wooden borders along the trail that lead to the thermals.
You will be staying in a collective accommodation under tents (2 to 3 volunteers per tent) in a field with toilets and bathroom in a local football club building. Meals will be taken there. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good products from the market and local producers.
Aubigné-Racan is located 40km south from Le Mans, 15 km west from the Château du Loir. Meeting with inhabitants will be organize to exchanges services. More information: http://www.association-capra.com/content/view/20/64/ and http://www.aubigne-racan.com/
If you are interested by archaeology, this workcamp is for you! It is the 6th year of partnership between Concordia, the Sarthe department and the city of Aubigné-Racan. Aubigné-Racan is a lovely city near the Loir’s river and it spreads over 3203 hectares with 2112 inhabitants. A very important part of Aubigné’s heritage is the Gallo-Roman complex composed of a theater, a temple, thermal facilities and markets built in the second half of the 1st century. This archeological site, property of the Sarthe department, is one of the most beautiful sites of the Pays de la Loire region. This area is very rich in built heritage and natural discoveries. You will discover archeology through the explanations of an Archeologist from the CAPRA (Center of Archeological Prospection and Research of Allonnes) about the Gallo-Roman history of Aubigné and about the wild life. You will take part in the local festivities: July 14th parade and fireworks, lightening of the old city called “Nuit des Chimères”, discovery of the local heritage, hiking.
You will be cycling on a daily basis to go from the city to the workcamp (4km). Please bring gardening gloves, good shoes and working clothes. As the nights can be quite cold, remember also to bring warm clothes. Don’t forget to bring a sleeping-mat, a warm sleeping bag (and a tent if you have your own!). Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
Meeting point: Aubigné-Racan train station. Closest airport: Paris.
