Aditu Archaeology Field School 2017! Now recruiting!


Join us in the 2017 season to discover the secrets of the Sanctuary of San Miguel in Excelsis, in Navarre (Spain). Our work this year will be a continuation of the excavation of the medieval cemetery at San Miguel. After the exciting discoveries of the previous years at the associated archaeological site of Zamartze, including the burials of Jacobean pilgrims and knights, and a Roman road and a destroyed building in the Roman part of the dig, we are trying to find out the origins of the Sanctuary at the top of one of the most sacred mountains of the Basque people.

The Sanctuary is shrouded in myth and mystery. It is assumed that in pre-Roman times a prehistoric sanctuary stood on the top of the mountain. The Romans continued its use as a sacred space, and in medieval times the present-day sanctuary was built to house the relics of Christ’s cross and the angel protector of the Basque Country.

Our first season of excavations at San Miguel brought to light evidence of violent conflict.  What will we find in 2017?

We are sure that 2017 will be another incredible year!
