Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeological (BAKOTA) Field School – funding available

The Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeological (BAKOTA) Field School is a summer undergraduate research program sponsored by Quinnipiac University and the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates Site program. Students accepted into the program will work with an international, multidisciplinary research team on the excavation and analysis of a Middle Bronze Age cemetery and settlement in eastern Hungary. Student travel, housing, food, field trip fees, etc. will be covered by the NSF in addition to a $500/week stipend (total $3,000). Ten Fellows will be selected from the pool of applicants. Eligibility: students must be a US citizen or permanent resident, and currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.

 

The BAKOTA project is studying a Bronze Age cemetery population in eastern Hungary, and aims to understand how this region intensified farming, craft production, and trade without corresponding increases in social inequality.
