Transylvania Bioarchaeology 2020 Field School and Training Program

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 personally trains all participants both in the excavation of human skeletal remains and the full suite of proper (and ethical) bioarchaeological analyses on those individuals excavated. 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!
