Archaeological Field Conservator
Joint expedition to Lofkend
Summer 2005

The joint expedition to Lofkend, a pre- and proto-historical burial
tumulus in southwestern Albania (1000-700 B.C.), is beginning its
second season of excavation in June 2005. The project is co-directed
by archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology, Academy of
Sciences, Albania, and the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA,
Los Angeles, California (USA). Primary finds include handmade
ceramics and stone tools as well as ornaments and weapons of iron
and of copper alloy. Our field season runs from June 20 to July 29,
2005 and the expedition is housed at Apollonia, with work and
storage facilities in the museum of the monastery at Apollonia.

The excavation seeks a Conservator for the full six-week season.
Candidates must have a graduate degree in Conservation or the
equivalent from a recognized program. Three to five years experience
working with inorganic archaeological materials, particularly iron
and copper alloys, and a minimum of three seasons of conservation
field experience, are highly desired.

We can provide travel costs to Albania, room and full board (shared
accommodation at Apollonia), cost of all conservation supplies and
expenses, and salary commensurate with training and experience
(resume and names of three referees are requested).
