Archaeology Conservation Center (CCA) in Rieti, Italy
Fourteen students participated in archaeological site work with Conservator Roberto Nardi, in Sardinia, Italy this summer. Our students helped with the conservation treatments of these larger than life-size Nuragic warriors, known as the Giants of Monte Prama. The sculptures were recently excavated and include archers, wrestlers and boxers carved in sandstone between the 9th and 8th century BC. This project won the most prestigious Public Choice Award for best preservation project in 2015. Our students were honored to work with Roberto.
