Once a year, usually during the month of July, a team of archaeologists excavate the site where many people perished in the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora. Anyone interested to join the research, personal or professional can contact us and we can put you in touch in order to obtain a visitors pass or research permits from the Indonesian authorities.
You don’t have to be an archaeologist to visit the excavation site. You even can see the reconstruction of a house on stilts, based on results of the excavations. Just ask us.
