The Monte Falcone Archaeology Field School 2019 (Baucina -PA-) will give you the opportunity of digging a Necropolis consisting mainly of rock cut burials dating from the 6th to the 5th century BC.
The Field School is open to everybody who is interested in Sicilian Archaeology and Ancient History. Graduates and undergraduates are welcome with or without experience.
