Description of Workcamp:

REGION.- Region of Valencia. Province of Castellуn.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK.- Volunteers will be active members of a

global project to disseminate information on the historical and

artistic heritage of the area, with an emphasis on the knowledge

of the Castle and its history. To this end, and in parallel with

the field tasks (weeding and cleaning the archaeological site),

activities related to the site or its surroundings will be

carried out: guided tours of the Castle, introduction to its

history, and workshops on field archaeology, such as technical

drawing, as well as cleaning and classifying ceramic materials.

This project will be complemented with a series of guided tours

of the surrounding areas, in which young people will get to know

the main attractions of Alcalб de Xivert (the Church, the church

museum and bell tower, excursions to the Serra d’Irta).

The work to be carried out this summer will consist of assistance

in the ongoing archaeological excavations, especially connected

with the cleaning and classification of the archaeological

findings from the higher areas of the Castle. Besides, work will

be devoted to the cleaning and removing of waste land, and to the

clearing of bushes in certain surrounding areas (the area for

soldiers’ duty and some sectors of the Morisco villa).

In order to carry out this project, the necessary tools will be

available (picks, spades, hoes, etc.), as well as a machine to

take the earth and the waste materials to the local dump.

The work will be carried out in small groups which will shift

place and type of work, so that all participants will be able to

work in all places and share the work to be carried out.

Work will take place from Monday to Friday, 4-5 hours a day,

usually in the mornings.


COMPLEMENTARY ACTIVITIES.- Excursions and visits

Workshops and training and leisure activities, etc.

Evening activities, group dynamics, sports activities, games,

These activities will be coordinated by a team of entertainment

professionals, under the responsibility of the Institut Valenciа

de la Joventut [Valencian Youth Organization], who will live

together and participate at the Workcamp. Their work methodology

will be based on participation, autonomy and responsibility.

The entertainment team will propose a series of entertainment

activities for the group to carry out in their leisure time,

adapted to the characteristics of the surrounding area and of the

participants. Following these specific suggestions, as well as

others from the volunteers, and in order to complement the

volunteers’ work, a calendar of cultural and leisure activities

will be prepared, which will be carried out in the afternoons and

over the weekends.
