The 2010 iteration of the Erasmus Intensive Workshop Archaeology’s Places and Contemporary Uses at IUAV is again in the process of working on a variety of difficult sites in the Veneto (Altino, Aquiliea, Borgoricco, Concordia Sagittaria). The task is to cover the extensive remains with protective covers and to announce their presence in the landscape. After the first week of lectures, the collaborative projects between students from Venice, Barcelona, Catania and Manchester are taking shape under the critical scrutiny of the tutorial team. As the clock runs down towards the jury at 14.00 hours on Friday 24 September the work rate is increasing. Watch this space for further reports.
