Belgium Archaeology

From Celia Chazelle and the EMF list:
A notice that Bailey Young, History Department, Eastern Illinois
University sent my way:

He is now recruiting students for the eighth season of the Summer
Archaeology in Belgium Program and would appreciate help in bringing
it to the attention of interested students. The dates are June
29-August 2, 2008, and the program centers on the excavation of
Walhain Castle, near Louvain-la-Neuve, the partner in this project.

Students earn four credits awarded as they prefer in either History
or Earth Sciences (Honors students have special Honors credit). The
course is open to all students in good standing*; there are no
prerequisites, and no previous background in archaeology is required.
While the site is located in Wallonia, and students with some
background in French will have ample opportunity to use it (the
co-director on site is a Belgian archaeologist, and there are often
Belgian students also working on the dig) all work is done in
English, and no language background is required.

*Teams are typically made up of students from a variety of
institutions, who enroll as guest students at EIU through the School
of Continuing Education; credits are transferable.

The cost of the program, which includes tuition and fees, board and
lodging --but not overseas airfare-- is estimated at around $5000.
