The Jadar Project: Archaeological Dig and Field School in Western Serbia

June 13, 2016 - July 3, 2016
(Summer Session I)

This is a great opportunity to explore your interest in or deepen your knowledge of archaeology field research methods. Work and learn alongside Professor Arthur Bankoff, chair of the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, and a team of archaeologists and geologists from the United States and Serbia on a dig in western Serbia, near Loznica. This hands-on archaeological field school will excavate a Bronze Age site, and explore the life of 3,500 years ago. This amazing three-week program includes weekend excursions to various scenic and historical sites. Students will be housed in Loznica, not far from the excavation site. Trips are taken to important sites, museums and tourist attractions. No prior experience is required.

This program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, and all majors.
