Field School Announcement
Experimental Archaeology Workshop in Sicily (IT)
Kati Caruso and Claudia Speciale
The workshop is the first attempt to re-build the Hut 1 of the Copper Age village of Tornambè (Pietraperzia, IT) next to the area of the excavation. Tools, materials, techniques will be consistent to the original ones, known by the archaeological investigation in Tornambé and from other prehistoric settlements in Sicily. We will start from making the tools to collect and work on vegetal materials – like cutting and drafting the wood, braiding the ropes, shaping stone blocks, etc. We will build the drystone wall and set up the vegetal roof. All the building phases will be recorded to put together the results through videos, pictures and analytical data sheets. During the workshop, we will highlight some of the bibliographical studies and the analysis and interpretation of the archaeological results.
