The workplace is taking place in a 12 th century castle. Lead by professional archaeologists, our jobwill consist in doing some restoring activities and excavation in the remaining parts of the castle. As we will be led by the archaeologists in the castle, they will be the main responsible of
coordinating our task. The technical work of the project is divided into full archaeological excavation, its restoration and rehabilitation and its subsequent management and public dissemination; recovery from the daily work of the various rooms and items that make up the fortress castle of St. Iscle, to later make possible its restoration. Participants will be provided with the necessary tools and our archaeologists will explain the basic techniques about restoration and excavation of the ruins.

This workcamp as well as the other summer activities organized by the Grup d’Esplai

premises are not used for teaching purposes during summer and we turn it into a place
where children’s summer activities, holiday camps and workcamps take place.
The main accommodation to sleep will be the gym of the school, provided with bunk beds,
mattresses, and wardrobes for the participants. As bathrooms, we will use the showers
and toilettes of the school.
All the food is cooked by a professional cook on the school’s kitchen. The meals are
served using the dining room in the school. We will share the dining room with children
and teenager groups taking part in summer activities organized by the

Just in front of the school, there is the public swimming pool of the town that can be used
by the participants.
The center of the village is 10 minutes’ walking from the school.
