A project at University of East Anglia is looking for volunteers for the next season of fieldwork in Western Sahara.
"We will be running a 3-week season of reconnaissance survey work from around 5-27 November 2010. We are also hoping to run a season of excavations from approximately 1 October - 13 November 2010, subject to the availability of external funding.
We are looking for volunteers for both of these components. If the excavations go ahead we will be seeking two sets of volunteers for this element, to participate in two consecutive 3-week excavation modules.", writes the project's co-director Nick Brooks.
Since 1975, three quarters of the territory of Western Sahara has been occupied by Morocco. A majority of the population is still living in refugee camps in Algeria. Those who remained in their homeland are subjected to serious harassment from the Moroccan occupiers. For more than 40 years the Sahrawis have been waiting for the fullfilment of their legitimate right to self-determination.
