Dear Friends in Heritage –
We have just opened applications for the 2018 season!
All of our popular projects are returning. And, as in the past, field schools are taking place at archaeological sites in Montenegro, the Republic of Macedonia and across Bulgaria. The projects span across all the major cultures and civilizations that once existed across the Balkans: from Neolithic farmers and Europe’s first civilization in the Copper age through Ancient Greek, Thracian, Roman and Byzantine civilizations.
In addition to excavation projects, there are conservation workshops in Bulgaria, the Republic of Macedonia and Greece covering Ancient Greek pottery, Roman and Late Antique pottery and glass, Roman mosaics and wall-paintings and Textiles, Paper & Metal.
And, our ‘Fresco-Hunting’ photo expedition will continue to explore medieval churches in the Balkans.
Also coming this season are our newest courses in underwater archaeology and vernacular architecture. Look for more information on these soon.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Balkans in 2018!
