Subject: Human Osteology Research Workshops and Field School in Transylvania (Romania)


Dear Colleagues,

Would you please forward the following intensive human osteology and bioarchaeology laboratory research workshops to your graduate and undergraduate students (see attached syllabi).

Our osteology and bioarchaeology programs are designed to offer intensive, hands on experience with remarkably well preserved human osteological remains, focusing primarily on research skill acquisition. They provide a very effective transition between the controlled teaching environment of an osteology academic lab and real "life" burial assemblages. As such, our programs offer an essential and necessary skill set to anyone pursuing a career in physical anthropology, bioarchaeology, forensics or medicine:

Adult Osteology Research Laboratory Workshop: Late Medieval "Crisis" Populations
Location: Odorheiu Secuiesc, Transylvania, Romania
Dates: June 2 - June 29, 2019
More information:  https://www.archaeotek-archaeology.org/adult-osteology-laboratory<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.archaeotek-archaeology.org%2Fadult-osteology-laboratory&data=02%7C01%7Canthropology%40gsu.edu%7C70f2bbdbaa4046b5b60f08d756feec6a%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C1%7C637073525426942911&sdata=Ga0VPZsuoO48hOFd9TXhmsmvOqcTe6Pe7q3%2BB9uhQ50%3D&reserved=0>

Project Director: Frankie West and Dr. Katie Zejdlik-Passalacqua (Department of Anthropology, Western Carolina University)

HISTORICAL CONTEXT : As the 15th century ends, the battle for Europe continues! The heroes (and their legend) that held back the Ottoman East have died: Vlad Dracula the Impaler in 1476; Saint Stephan the Great in 1504; Skanderberg in 1468. The fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the European defeat at the Battle of Mohacs in 1526 opened the way for the Ottoman expansion into Europe, all the way to the gates of Vienna. The Saxon fortresses and the Szekely armies managed to hold the Ottomans at bay as the Principality of Transylvania was born in 1570. Turkish pressure combined with the struggle between Catholicism and Protestantism has generated an extraordinary environment that impacted the local populations in a variety of ways, both physiologically and socio-culturally. The aim of our osteology and bioarchaeology projects is to evaluate how major global political events impact physically and physiologically the local Transylvanian medieval populations.

For bioarchaeology field work experience, our participants can further combine the above programs with our bioarchaeology field school: Medieval Cemetery Funerary Cemetery Excavation<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.archaeotek-archaeology.org%2Fmedieval-cemetery-excavation&data=02%7C01%7Canthropology%40gsu.edu%7C70f2bbdbaa4046b5b60f08d756feec6a%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C1%7C637073525426962905&sdata=A8%2FkPTtFV6K23GlmySVVx28QWZTVuFFDada5yhzCwBg%3D&reserved=0>. (6 academic credits available through USF for the second session).

Our projects are designed as intensive hands-on laboratory experience programs and, as such, are open to both credit students and non-credit participants. For more information on this program, see attached brochures or visit www.archaeotek-archaeology.org<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.archaeotek-archaeology.org&data=02%7C01%7Canthropology%40gsu.edu%7C70f2bbdbaa4046b5b60f08d756feec6a%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C1%7C637073525426962905&sdata=s98yPuHOZTk0lD8IdjfmF9tbZ6keBPFhe81jAOYSdHs%3D&reserved=0>
