MARQ, Alicante City’s Archaeological Museum, approved a summer programme of digs at eight sites.
Excavations, which are due to begin in July with a €130,000 budget, will include Calpe’s mediaeval Pobla d’Ifac settlement and the Cova del Randero cave in Pedreguer as well as underwater prospections in Teulada-Moraira and Benitachell.
For the second year running, it will be necessary to comply with anti-Covid measures, explained Julia Parra, who head’s the Diputacion’s Culture department.
As a result, there will be fewer volunteers at digs, owing to the need for social distancing and there can be no sharing of tools and equipment.
