The project aims to explore biodynamic construction techniques and experimental archeology to build a replica of a house from the Iberian period.

Description: Why was ART (Association for the Recovery of Tenure) born? We are in a time of great change within our environment. We want the people of the region to be the protagonists of these changes we will work so that its growth is carried out from a point of view sustainable, to get more resources and for growth to have an impact on people which is still inhabiting the territory and which therefore keeps it alive. We organise this workcamp because we believe that community life and contact with the local population are key aspects of the international volunteering to reduce distances, share experiences and understand different lifestyles, habits and ways of seeing the world.

Type of Work: The work will be mostly manual and it will consist of the clay construction of a replica house from the Iberian period, using experimental archeology techniques. We have the collaboration of techniques in biodynamic construction and two others in experimental archeology.

Accommodation: Accommodation will be provided in a house of the village Ballestar.

Language: The camp language is in English, but nevertheless knowledge of the local language might be of help for better communication with the locals.

Requirements: No special skills requiered to attend the camp.

Approximate Location: A space close to the village of Ballestar, a small village in the Natural Park of Tinença de Benifassà.
