Frankrijk | Restauratie en archeologie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 18 dagen naar een restauratie en archeologieproject.
Het project duurt van 21 juni t/m 9 juli.
This workcamp will give you the opportunity to learn the techniques of modern archaeological excavation, and to put them into practice by working on an old landyard of rubble dating back to the 19th century. The excavation will be significant because it will reveal important historical facts of the place, and it will allow us to learn how the first archaeological excavation were carried out. Therefore, the work will consist of doing an analysis of archaeology. Under the supervision of an archaeologist, you will have to remove all the grubble, clean the zone, and sort the stones. You will have to be very careful and meticulous during the clean-up, because you may find archaeological remains or objects. You will also be working with other local youth during the workcamp.
In groups, in tents on the Sanxay campground (pool, river, multi-sport areas). Meals will be prepared in turns by « kitchen teams ».
Sanxay, 30 km from Poitiers. You will be able to participate in the local summer events organized by the town. You will also have the opportunity to discover the region: le Marais Poitevin, La Rochelle, and Poitiers. You will also get to meet the local residents and share wonderful cultural exchange moments, as well as discover the historical and cultural heritage of the region (castles, abbeys, and a tree conservatory).
The Gallo-Roman site of Sanxay is one the major archaeological sites of the old province of Aquitaine. Tucked between the twist and turns of the Vonne Valley, this small village used to stretch over 25 hectares and was occupied from the 1st to the 5th century. Sanxay underwent an important development and monumental phase during the 11th century AD. The archaeological site of Sanxay is one of the best conserved ancient sites of France, and must remain so. In this regard, the Center of National Monuments asked our association to organize a workcamp there for the 3rd year in a row.
