“Philippopolis” Field School is an intensive, two-week educational program in Roman archaeology. The program offers combination of ten days hands-on fieldwork at an important archaeological site - the Roman Forum (Central Square) in Philippopolis and theoretical lectures on Roman building techniques, topography and development of the Roman cities. The program incorporates also research trips which will introduce the participants with the comprehensive historical and cultural appreciation of Rome and Roman civilization. In 2013 the program will be hosted by Archaeological museum of Plovdiv. Plovdiv is the second largest city in Bulgaria and is older than most of the oldest towns in Europe like Rome, Athens or Constantinople. The city offers many museums and archaeological monuments. Its old part is an imposing open-air museum and here is situated one of the most remarkable sights in Bulgaria - the Ancient Roman Theatre which is still used for open-air performances.
