Transylvania Bioarchaeology, in collaboration with the Romanian Institute of Archaeology and Art History (Cluj-Napoca), are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Jucu Necropolis Excavation and Bioarchaeology Field School! This field school is unique in that it trains all participants both in the excavation of human skeletal remains and the analyses on those individuals excavated through a research-led teaching framework. The course is taught in English by an international team of bioarchaeologists, forensic anthropologists, and archaeological specialists.
The field school also includes a one-of-a-kind, 5-day field trip through Transylvania, exploring the beautiful Transylvanian countryside, archaeological sites, cities, medieval churches, glacial lakes in the Carpathian Mountains, the bear sanctuary, and of course, trips to Dracula’s real castle and birthplace!
