07 August 2019 - The International Summer Archaeological School for Children - Arheolab, launched its activities on August 1 in the Budva City Park, and will last until August 23, reports Culture Corner.
The activities of the educational project Arheolab will be held every day, except Sunday, from 09.30 am to 01.30 pm.
The school is run by Asja Zec, a graduate archaeologist from Padua (Italy). The school is traditionally organized by the Public Institution Museums and Galleries of Budva for the sixth consecutive year.
At this Summer Archaeological School for Children, students have the opportunity to get in touch with archaeological research in a simple and interesting way. They participate in the simulation of archaeological excavation, more precisely, in a wooden box filled with layers of soil they will be able to find objects that correspond to certain periods of time, all to gain knowledge and insight into the formation of historical layers through time, which archaeologists then decipher.
Simply put, the goal is to make children aware that beneath the surface of the earth there is a whole world just waiting to be discovered, and that archaeological finds are not only found in archaeological excavations in far exotic countries, but that they can also be found below the path by which we walk every day.
Unlike in previous years, in addition to the findings, tombs from the Iron and Roman periods will be excavated this year.
The school is intended for children from 5 to 13 years old. Partners of the International Summer Archaeological School Arheolab are the Public Company for Coastal Zone Management Morsko dobro and the Tourism Organization of Budva Municipality.
