Šalitrena Cave Field School in Paleoanthropology and Paleolithic Archaeology

A field school opportunity in Paleoanthropology and Paleolithic Archaeology, offered by The University of Winnipeg in collaboration with The National Museum (Belgrade) and Belgrade University, is now available to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students.

The field school will take place at the Middle and Upper Paleolithic-bearing ŠalitrenaCave site in the vicinity of Valjevo, Serbia. Students will participate in the excavation of the cave and the survey of the surrounding area, processing of artifacts and soil samples, as well as all phases of the documentation process and basic analyses of the recovered material.

In addition to the field and lab work, there will be several formal lectures on different aspects of the project by specialists and distinguished visitors, and field trips are scheduled to Balanica Cave Complex and other Paleolithic sites in the region.
