Applications are now being accepted to take part in the excavation works scheduled for 20-27 August, which are part of the Science for society, society for science at the Site of National Remembrance in Łambinowice project.
The aim of the works is to find the locations of mass graves of Poles from Second World War – soldiers from the September 1939, and Warsaw insurgents who died during their captivity in the Lamsdorf POW camps. The tasks of volunteers will include: establishing and excavation of sites, turning soil, measuring, recording the artefacts found and clean-up works.
From those who are interested we only expect a willingness to get experience, be dutiful and committed to given tasks. An interest in archaeology and 20th century history will also be welcome. In return, we offer working as part of a team of experienced archaeologists, as well as gaining basic knowledge and skills in excavation.
Applications including name, surname, home address, date and place of birth and contact details (e-mail and telephone), can be sent to email@example.com. The number of places is limited. Recruitment is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
