This is an excavation-based field school, offered as Mississippi State University’s class AN 3510 (6 credits). It will take place from June 13 through July 15, 2020 in Đurđevac, Croatia at the site of Đurđevac-Sošice. This is a multiperiod site, spanning the medieval through early modern periods consisting of a multiple construction phases of a church and associated burials. Excavations have been conducted under the auspices of the Muzej Grada Koprivnice in Đurđevac during (2015-2019). We will be working with the museum and several Croatian students to complete excavation of burials interred in the church foundations. In addition to the architectural and extended burial excavations, students will be exposed to excavation of commingled remains from the burial fill. Students will live and work together as a group while gaining experience in the methods of archaeological field excavation, burial excavation, and will have a special focus on GIS mapping and photogrammetry. Students will have multiple guest lectures covering local culture history and archaeology, and a guided tour an active Iron Age archaeological site near Pozega.
