Trasimeno Archaeology Field School

The Trasimeno Archaeology Field School, based in Castiglione del Lago on the shores of Lake Trasimeno between Umbria and Tuscany, provides a curricular concentration in Archaeology and History. This six-week program begins with student arrival and pick-up from the Rome airport and transfer to Perugia for the welcome dinner. After orientation, the group is brought to nearby Castiglione del Lago where they live for the duration of the program.

This location was chosen for its wonderfully hospitable community and its jurisdiction and proximity to the archaeological site. Student time will be allocated between on-site work (at the newly discovered ruins of a Roman Villa on Lake Chiusi), in-class lessons, extra-curricular activities in Castiglione and Perugia, and field trips. At the end of the program, students will be transferred to Perugia for a farewell festa and taken by private bus to the Rome airport for departure. Program dates are provided on the Umbra Institute Summer Session One academic calendar.

On-Site Study

The Field School consists of two courses, one theoretical and one practical, both based in Castiglione del Lago with daily work on the archaeological site. The program aims to provide you with a comprehensive overview of up-to-date theories and methods of archaeological research and fieldwork as applied to the civilizations that shaped the history and culture of central Italy.
