Kind of work: Open air excavation located in the top a a hill of easy access (the large area being studied is not protected from sun or rain, etc.; in the place we have just a small house to keep working tools as a basic logistic support to the excavation – people are daily transported from the village of Freixo until this point and back). We need also a small team, whose elements may change, in a rotation system, to work in the local museum of Freixo de NumÃo (Prehistoric section): to range things, to wash, to mark, to store information about previously recovered artifacts, under the orientation of the directors of excavation.
