This is a completely new way of doing archaeological field work. It is an active and educational vacation spent in Croatia, a beautiful and colourful environment where green and blue colours of nature dominate the area between Split and Trogir. All this will provide a unique experience for all participants. The rich and turbulent history of this area offers an endless source of findings from different historical periods, and it is therefore easy to understand why it is still insufficiently explored. 

The ancient town that we will explore was an opulent Roman city – SALONAE (plural). It was established as the centre of the newly annexed province of Dalmatia at the 1st c BC, firstly mentioned in historical scripts at the 2nd century BC. Often neglected historical importance of this city, which at its peak was among the largest Roman cities in general, has propelled various researchers to discover its mysteries and share it with the rest of the world. During many years of research, tons of findings were discovered and processed here, various publications written, many archaeologists educated, secrets revealed… We feel great pride to be able to participate in such a project, contributing to newly gained knowledge and future generations. An added value to this program are organized private guided tours to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the towns of Split and Trogir, and in particular a visit to Roman Augusteum in Narona, a town contemporary to Salona, situated 1100 kilometers to the south.
