• Travelers can go on an archaeological dig for their next vacation

    2011-04-07

    Travelers who are looking for a unique and active trip may want to consider joining an archaeological dig. It is a great way to experience a country's culture while still getting some exercise and fresh air.

    Vacationers headed to the beautiful Netherlands Antilles this summer can check out St. Eustatius Island. There have been several artifacts discovered on its beaches that come from the colonial period. Tourists can volunteer to search for these lost items on the island's stunning beaches. They can also try their hand at snorkeling, scuba diving and much more, according to AOL.

    Tourists can join archaeologists from the Universities of Maryland, Georgia and Western Oregon to uncover objects from the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy. In 79 A.D., Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the entire village, essentially "freezing" everything in time.

    Travelers who attend the excursion will help officials grow the "Food and Drink in Ancient Pompeii" database, which will provide a better understanding of how the citizens once lived. Additionally, they will stay in a hotel that offers private baths, housekeeping,and a pool, as well as breakfast and dinner.
