Terra Europa is a non-profit group looking for volunteers to excavate at Tropaeum Traiani, modern-day Adamclisi in S.E. Romania. This site was the location for perhaps one of the bloodiest battles in Roman military history between Emperor Trajan and the Dacian-Sarmation-Germanic coalition in 101-102 AD (First Dacian War). To commemorate the event, Trajan established the city of Tropaeum Traiani
(where he settled his veterans) and the Roman engineers built an immense
monument and war memorial.

There are excavations in the city center as well as surveying and excavation in the surrounding area. Participants may choose a 2-week or 3-week option: 16-30 July 2004 or 16 July-6 August 2004.
