FOR ALL ARCHAEOLOGY, BIOARCHAEOLOGY, OSTEOLOGY, FORENSICS, GEOPHYSICS AND EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS, CHECK OUT OUR BRAND NEW WEBSITE:
Our 2014 field season promises excitement of new discovery and experiences. After a very rewarding first season, our Roman Provincial excavation will continue exploring how major axes of communication impacts social and economical development in its immediate surroundings. Our medieval funerary excavation, the "Lost Churches Project", attached to our osteology and bioarchaeology workshops, yielded results far beyond our expectations as we will continue exploring the lost churches of the region. Students will not only enjoy amazing landscapes, but will also learn how to excavate, understand archaeological environments, perform basic survey techniques, phosphate testing, mapping, etc. As our Late Bronze Age Noua Culture population osteology project came to a close in 2012, we are happy to continue offering a new and more intensive osteology workshop as well as an andvanced workshop, the bioarchaeology of infants, exploring the human physical impacts of broad political changes during the middle Ages in Transylvania.
Since 2001 (when it was created as a field research association by two archaeologists, Andre Gonciar and Stephen Batiuk), Archaeological Research and Techniques Center, ArchaeoTek-Canada, has offered numerous fieldwork opportunities to students and lovers of archaeology and anthropology across Europe and North America. ArchaeoTek is an independent association of researchers in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, physical anthropology, GIS, remote sensing. All our projects are the result of individual cooperative initiatives set up as field, laboratory and scientific collaborations with local museums and/or national research units.
Collaborating with museums and academic institutions of our host countries, we have successfully excavated a wide scope of sites ranging from Neolithic to Iron Age in occupation phases, and from sedentary to nomadic and military in nature. Over the years, we have excelled in providing valuable fieldwork opportunities in exciting and affordable learning environments for hundreds staff members, volunteers and students.
Our projects are of interest to both experienced archaeologists and anyone with a passion for history and archaeology, travel and adventure. As well as earning valuable field experience, our students are taught all of the essential skills of excavation work and basic in-field recording and artifact processing methods. Evenings filled with fun activities always complement our workdays, while weekends of sightseeing and cultural exploration are available to those wishing to journey further into the histories and realities of our host countries.
