You’ll spend most of your days excavating archaeological sites and cleaning and sorting artifacts fresh from the soil. When not working with artifacts, you may have the chance to explore by mapping sites that have yet to be fully explored. You’ll also contribute to the most important aspects of good research: organizing and entering data.
The researchers may shift the emphasis from team to team, depending on how the research progresses. But no matter what you work you’re doing, your efforts will help deepen the understanding of Non Ban Jaark’s fascinating past and contribute to the security of its future.
When you’re not in the field, you can enjoy the company of your teammates and get to know the town of Phimai. You’ll share almost all meals with researchers and teammates, and on one day of each team you’ll dine outdoors at a local restaurant; many pleasant places line the banks of the Mun River. On some days, work will finish early or begin late, giving you the chance to visit the Phimai Museum, the historical park in the center of Phimai, or the nearby prehistoric site of Ban Prasad. Occasionally, you may have the exciting chance to attend one of the festivals in the Phimai historic park.
Note: Field conditions and research needs can lead to changes in the itinerary and activities. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
