Since 1995 the Grup de Recerca d’Arqueologia Medieval i Post-medieval (GRAMP-UB) is an in-terdisciplinary team lead by University of Barcelona, formed by members of different national and international institutions.
Its target is to study the medieval and post medieval archaeological re-mains. The new Degree in Archaeology offers to the students the possibility to collaborate in the excavation campaigns in medieval sites, and also some practices in Experimental Archaeology: for instance, they can do some experimental training at the AREA in l’Esquerda, Roda de Ter, an Open-Air Laboratory dedicated to experimental works.
The University of Barcelona has taken part in some projects funded by the Spanish Ministerio de Educación y Cultura and MICINN (DGICYT Projects): ancient agriculture, earthworks, construction and metallurgy.
Key contact is Dr. Imma Ollich-Castanyer.
