Excursions

During a campaign, which lasts between 6 and 8 weeks, we do not only focus our energy on the excavations and everything attached to that work. We do have time in the weekends for excursions, where we visit interesting archaeological sites in and around Rome and Lazio. These excursions are of course voluntarily, but most of the times, everybody participate.

The purpose of the excursions are not only to visit and see archaeological sites, but also to strengthen the group dynamic, so that people have other social reference points other than those created during the hard work on excavation.

Below, you can find a selection of our excursions over the course of the last 5 years.
