| HARP will be running an Experimental Archaeology Field School in the
| village of Kissonerga, Cyprus in August 2013.
| The Field School aims to recreate an installation that was likely used
| for beer production in the Middle Bronze Age. The original structure
| has been excavated as part of a research excavation run by Dr. Lindy
| Crewe of the University of Manchester since 2007.
| The site of Kissonerga-Skalia is a Middle Bronze Age settlement that
| has revealed a series of domestic dwellings that were superseded by a
| phase of monumental construction. The village of Kissonerga is
| incredibly rich in archaeological sites with some of the worlds oldest
| Neolithic wells at Kissonerga-Mylouthkia, the Chalcolithic settlement
| of Kissonerga-Mosphillia, as well as the settlement of Skalia.

They're running 2 2-week sessions: you get to pay for room+board, do
manual labor all day, and probably sit around at night and drink beer.
