    Uncovering The Place Of Uni: Archeological Excavations At The Ancient Etruscan Site Of Poggio Colla In Italy

    AIA Society: Montréal
    Lecturer: Ann Steiner

    The ancient Etruscans, who flourished in central Italy between the eighth and third centuries BCE, are among the most poorly understood people in the ancient Mediterranean.  We know they influenced Roman religion a great deal, and their control of metal resources brought them enormous wealth. They left very few written records, and scholars still struggle to translate their language.  Archaeological excavation has helped to develop a fuller picture of this enigmatic culture; this presentation will focus on results of excavations from 1995-2015 at the Etruscan site of Poggio Colla, a sanctuary to the goddess Uni, where the speaker serves as a director. When excavation began, virtually nothing was known about the site including its ancient name;  all that remained were scraps of ancient fortification walls, robbed-out tombs, and a flattened hilltop.  The lecture takes the audience through the process of uncovering a monumental temple, at least ten votive deposits including a large cache of gold jewelry, and the discovery, on the last day of the last season of work, of one of the longest inscriptions ever found in the Etruscan language.  The lecture emphasizes the process the excavation staff used to interpret the site from season to season as well as the final results and the questions that remain.

    Federal agencies are strongly encouraged to submit Section 106 documentation for these purposes using e106, as it expedites a critical step in Section 106 review and encourages complete and accurate submissions. Join us as experts from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation discuss documentation and the e106 system.

    This webinar was designed and developed by the President's Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, which is an independent federal agency that promotes the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of our nation's historic resources, and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy.

    Preparing to Direct Your First Field Project: Safety and Logistical Considerations

    Program Instructor: Kaitlyn Davis

    Graduate schools provide students opportunities for fieldwork and training in archaeological methods and theory, but they often overlook instruction in field safety and well-being. We suggest that more explicit guidance on how to conduct safe fieldwork will improve the overall success of student-led projects and prepare students to direct safe and successful fieldwork programs as professionals. In this seminar, we draw on the experiences of current and recent graduate students as well as professors who have overseen graduate fieldwork to outline key considerations in improving field safety and well-being and to offer recommendations for specific training and safety protocols. While discussing these considerations and recommendations, we will use both domestic and international field project examples, as well as those involving community collaboration. The resources and recommendations provided in this seminar will be especially useful for projects whose crews are comprised at least partially of students, interns, or volunteers.
