Della Casa, Philippe; Fux, Peter; Walser, Christoph; Pommaret, Françoise (2013). Buthan-Swiss archaeology project 2013: Report on activities and outlook. Zürich: Schweizerisch-Liechtensteinische Stiftung für archäologische Forschungen im Ausland.

Abstract

The Bhutan-Swiss Archaeology Project’s first phase (2008–10) was focused on the ex- cavation of the Drapham Dzong ruins in the Bumthang valley (see corresponding SLSA annual reports). The second phase (2011–13) aims to achieve the implementation of the country’s first Archaeology Office under the Department for Conservation of Cul- tural Heritage Sites (Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs) as well as to complete the modular teaching program in practical archaeology, which was set up by the Depart- ment of Prehistoric Archaeology of the University of Zurich. Semiannually, archaeo- logical surveys, practical field schools and small excavations as well as theoretical class room teaching modules have been conducted by Swiss experts (see corresponding SLSA annual reports). In the context of the project’s second phase, activities of many kinds took place in 2013.
