Program Description:
This is an excavation-based field methods course held at the site of Sošice located in Ðurdevac, Croatia. This site, spanning the 16-19th centuries, consists of a multiple construction phases of a church and associated burials. Excavations have been conducted under the auspices of the Muzej Grada Koprivince in Ðurdevac from 2015-2018. We will work with the museum alongside 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. This is the second year of the program with the same collaborators and will build on the work conducted during Summer 2019.
