Archaeology of the Spanish Civil War

Last year's dig seemed to be successful, so this year the International Brigades Archaeology Project is returning to the town of Belchite. They are looking for volunteers to take part in an academic research project, archaeological field school and working holiday, with a unique opportunity to learn more about the International Brigades and the Spanish Civil War, and archaeological techniques from basic excavation to recording and surveying. The dig will be taking place in the first half of September.
There are going to be evening talks, as well, but because the project is unable to get full funding, volunteers are going to have to pay for accommodation and food.
The IBAP website is at
And why is this on a blog about Hay? The UK project co-ordinator is Sal Garfi, a local bookseller.
