Archaeology holiday on Menorca
About our archaeology holiday on Menorca
Our archaeology holiday on Menorca is a great way to get up close with monuments and remains going back over 3500 years. Menorca is equidistant in the Mediterranean and has the 2nd deepest natural harbour in the world (Pearl Harbour is the deepest). This geography has acted as a magnet to civilisations dating back to the Bronze Age and evidence of the island’s neolithic periods, plus Roman and Moorish occupations can be found all over the island. Menorca has the highest density of B.C. archaeology in Europe and is about to become a World Heritage site for this reason. The holiday is conducted in a light and friendly manner and designed to appeal to all levels of enthusiast. 2018 was our first foray into the archaeoligal holiday market and by general consent from our guests, it was a triumph.
Our Archaeology group leaders
Alongside a deep and intimate knowledge of their subject, it's important to us that our course tutors are approachable, friendly and able to communicate on all levels. With this in mind, we're delighted to be working with Elena Sintes Olives and Sabina Llambias Pell. As a collective, they run Menorca Arqueològica, a company that specialises in the ancient history of the island. Elena has a doctorate in prehistoric archaeology from the University of Barcelona and gives talks all over the island on the history of Menorca. Sabina, who is half American and half Spanish, speaks perfect English and secured a degree in Medieval History, also from the University of Barcelona. Both are great communicators and have a sense of fun which they bring to their chosen subject.
The 4 star, adults only, Audax Hotel is one of the best hotels that we’ve used anywhere on the Balearic Islands. Set right next to the beach in Menorca's classiest holiday resort, the hotel is stunning and nothing is a problem for its excellently trained staff. The Audax Hotel also plays host to the finest health spa on Menorca and each of our guests will have a free session during their holiday.
