Археологическая экспедиция к курганам раннего средневековья

Ufa, Russia Archeological expeditions

Объявляется набор целеустремленных, талантливых, любознательных, сильных телом и бодрых духом молодых людей для участия в наших мероприятиях! Если вы интересуетесь археологией и историей, хотите стать участником новейших открытий и просто любите Южный Урал, то вам точно к нам!

С 9 по 23 июля 2019 г. в Бураевском районе Башкортостана пройдут археологические раскопки Бустанаевского курганного могильника и разведка раннесредневековых поселений. Данный могильник оставлен носителями кушнаренковской археологической культуры (7-8 вв.), которых многие исследователи считают угро-мадьярами (древними венграми), двигавшимися на запад.

Кстати, в раскопках принимает участие делегация археологов из Венгрии. Они уже не первый год приезжают в Россию в поисках древней Родины предков.

Организаторами обеспечивается транспорт, снаряжение (палатки, спальники), инструменты и, конечно, питание. Если вы хотите принять участие в экспедиции, то заполните анкету, пишите, звоните и отправляйтесь с нами!

Ссылка на анкету будет оправлена автоматически.

Type of work

Копать, а если точнее, то снимать насыпь кургана (по 20 см), просматривать грунт на наличие находок, зачищать каждый горизонт раскопа для фотофиксации и зарисовки, проводить вскрытие погребения. Помимо работы на раскопе, предусмотрено ежедневное дежурство в лагере. Волонтер-дежурный помогает заведующему полевой кухней в приготовлении пищи. Здесь необязательно обладать кулинарными навыками, но они тоже приветствуются.

Conditions

Сбор в Уфе. К месту расположения лагеря волонтеров везет автобус. Сам лагерь находится на некотором удалении от раскопа, поэтому добираться волонтеры будут также на автобусе по полевой дороге.

Если вы хотите приехать после 9 числа, то предварительно ваш приезд нужно согласовать. В этом случае заброску от Уфы мы возместить не можем. Волонтер может самостоятельно добраться до районного центра Бураево (от Уфы ежедневно ездят автобусы, такси и попутки). Оттуда уже заберем мы, но при предварительном уведомлении и согласовании.

Ростиславль Рязанский

Russia Archeological expeditions

Ростиславльская археологическая экспедиция (ИА РАН) набирает волонтёров для работы на раскопках в июле месяце 2019 года.

Городище Ростиславль: Московская область, Озёрский район. Руководитель экспедиции - к.и.н. Владимир Юрьевич Коваль.
Набираем людей не моложе 18 лет. Историческое образование и специальные навыки для добровольцев не обязательны. Особенно приветствуются мужчины и люди с опытом работы в экспедициях. Работа не оплачивается.
Главная задача: сделать хорошее дело и хорошо отдохнуть.
И в том, и в другом нам в помощь: лес, река, чистая природа и хорошая компания.

Условия проживания – полевые: спим в туристических палатках, готовим на костре, моемся и стираем личные вещи в реке. Туалеты и умывальники также полевые. Примерно раз в несколько дней включается генератор, который можно использовать для подзарядки небольшого количества устройств.

Экспедиция может обеспечить людей транспортом во время общего заезда и общего отъезда. В остальные дни сотрудники приезжают/уезжают своим ходом.

В эту экспедицию люди едут добровольно и все - работают бесплатно. Мы приезжаем в Ростиславль, чтобы делать общее дело. Серия вышедших публикаций, ряд уникальных находок и хорошая научная репутация подтверждают результативность наших усилий. Если вы считаете это нужным делом, присоединяйтесь!

Постоянные участники экспедиции ежегодно понемногу скидываются на питание. Тем же, кто приезжает впервые в течение первых двух недель ни на что скидываться не надо.
Но даже, если Вы пожелаете остаться на больший срок, сумма взносов на питание будет ничтожно мала.

Всем добровольцам необходимо заранее лично обратиться к руководителю экспедиции В.Ю.Ковалю. Его контакты Вы получите подав заявку по этому проекту на сайте Гудсёрфинг.
При этом укажите, пожалуйста, основные сведения о себе: пол, возраст, опыт работы в археологических экспедициях, профессиональные навыки, сфера интересов.
Для более подробного ознакомления с экспедицией существует группа вКонтакте: Ростиславльская экспедиция волонтёрам. Там Вы также можете задать любой интересующий Вас вопрос.

EHV - Park of the former Grand Hotel Waldlust - Recultivation

Freudenstadt, Germany Others...

The Waldlust Hotel in Freudenstadt, founded in 1899, was a first choice resort of a noble society of spa guests. It stands as a historic architecture building, as a cultural heritage treasury, as a long time social meeting place in a high rank – a unique symbol of a former golden period of town development.

It is surrounded by a wide park area, which formerly served as an old style wellness and leisure time retreat for the noble high society clientele. The park had been fallen to oblivion in many years. Due to the absence of any gardening, cultivation forms and structures had gone lost.

The project consist of two parts – a practical working part which will last 6 hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends.

The project will focus on the recultivation of the former hotel park. While restoring and cultivating further parts of the historic hotel park, the old concept of Parkwald (park forest) should be regained und brought into presence. This means the clearing of small or middle aged trees and plants that are not typically for the park as well as the excavation of garden structures with century old origin currently covered by leaves.

In addition, the reconstruction of a historic path, which has been started in the previous project will be continued. Finally, a sand stone wall that accompanies the main access path to the former hotel will be repaired.

EHV - Amantia Archaeological Park - Excavations and Conservation of Tombs

Albania Archeological expeditions

The ancient city of Amantia has been one of the most important cities of South Illyria. The ancient city ruins of the fortification of the Acropolis, the Ancient Stadium, the Early Christian Basilica and the Temple of Aphrodite as well as remains of other buildings have been preserved.

The trait of Amantia and one of its most attractive elements is the necropolis, rich in monumental tombs, dating back to the late 4th century BC. Three specimens of this type of tombs can be found here, among which the most representative is the so called the Jew's Tomb.

Due to their monumental construction and rich inventory, these graves have become the object of theft, illegal excavations and vandalism, starting from antiquity to nowadays.

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part. The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

The project aims to rehabilitation, archaeological rescue excavation and documentation of damaged funerary structures in the North-Eastern area of the necropolis. The intervention will consist of the removal of soil caused by the clandestine digging activities, the opening of a survey of the archaeological structures and their documentation.

Due to the violation of the Jew's Tomb, some of its blocks collapsed. During the project, the vegetation will be removed, the harm will be cleaned up and the architectural elements will be returned to their original places.

Besides the interventions in the monuments, paths to the tombs will be created. At the end of the interventions, the entire itinerary will be equipped with orientation and explanatory tables.

EHV - Kenozero National Park - Traditional Wood Techniques

Of Kenozero Lake, Russia Others...

Kenozero National Park is situated in the south-west of the Arkhangelsk region, representing the conserved masterpieces of the Russian wooden architecture located in the traditional northern cultural landscape. The Park is also known for its unique nature and is a member of the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

The project will focus on the conservation and restoration of the chapel of St. Apostle John the Evangelist (18th century) and a water mill from (late 19th century) both located in Zekhnova village.

In 2008, a team of local carpenters performed a series of restoration works on the bell tower and the roofing of the chapel. Nevertheless, there are still interventions needed in order to preserve the chapel. In particular, during the project following works are planned: corrective actions at the bell tower and at the porch, a partial replacement of the roof construction, the dome-drum and supporting beams as well as a partial replacement of the wooden shingles.

The water mill in Zekhnova village exists since 19th century and was abandoned in 1970-s. The restoration of the mill began in 2004 and was finished in 2008, but the water channel sourcing the mill is still in poor condition. During the project the channel will be deconstructed, damaged logs will be replaced by new ones, the necessary treatment measures will be undertaken to revitalize the channel.

During the project, volunteers will have the opportunity to use traditional carpentry tools and earn basic techniques of working with axes. They will also learn several ways of marking and replacing logs as well as other wood processing technologies. In addition, volunteers will understand how water mills work and will have the chance to see such construction from an insider's view.

The program will be completed by excursions.

EHV - El Paodor del Pontet - Archaeological Excavations

Altea, Spain Archeological expeditions

El Poador del Pontet in Altea is a monumental fountain complex dating back to the 18th century which was serving as water supply for the inhabitants of the town. El Poador del Pontet has a semicircular shape, where twelve jets of water sprang up on a ninemeters long rectangular raft.

The fountain had been used for nearly two hundred years – in 1782 El Poador del Pontet was mentioned for the first time in a document; and in 1963 the ditch was coated.
When El Poador del Pontet was re-discovered in the end of 2014 it was covered by one meter thick layer of soil. In 2015, excavations started, which showed that the circular structure of the fountain had been gradually filled due to the contribution of mud from Barranquet ravine. This process started in the middle of the 19 century. Among the older people in the neighbourhood, historians pointed out, no one remembers seeing or hearing their parents or grandparents talking about this structure, but they did use the same section of the ditch as a scrubber until the 50ies of the 20th century

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part. The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

Within the framework of the project the excavations will be continued. The volunteers will work together with local archaeologists who will explain them the work and the background of the site.

The tasks will content physically demanding digging works as well as the documentation of the excavations, the cleaning and the catalogisation of the findings.

Erxleben, Germany Others...

Erxleben Castle is an originally mediaeval mooted castle that was built by the Alvensleben family which lived there till 1945. Afterwards it was used as a technical school, and since 1990 it had been out of use.

For more than fifteen years Deutsches Fachwerkzentrum Quedlinburg, a non-profit association, has been working on the preservation and restoration of historic buildings as an authentic living testimony of architectural heritage.

The project will focus on the restoration of a Renaissance hall which had been used during the second half of the 20th century as class room. By careful restoration the room shall be transformed into a Renaissance hall again. During the Training Course “Traditional Wood Techniques” the participants will gain practical skills in restoration of historic windows.

They will learn methods as boat-shaped insetting, the use of fish and bone glue in the restoration of historical wooden elements and others. The works will focus on windows from the Baroque time as well as from 18th and 19th centuries. Depending on the progress of the work the restoration of doors can be included in the programme, too. In addition, the restoration of historical half-timbered structures from the 18th century will be taught. The participants will gain theoretical knowledge about traditional timber joints such as mortise and tenon joints and gain practical skills in their restoration.
