Since 2001, ArchaeoTek is dedicated to providing field and laboratory education and research opportunities in Transylvania, Romania, for archaeology and anthropology students and enthusiasts, offering affordable ways to explore their passion, while maintaining the highest standards of research and academic excellence. After more than two dozen projects and over 2000 students and volunteers from more than 15 nations, we have become a consecrated archaeological, bioanthropological and exploration geophysics research center, with excavations covering the entire Carpathian Prehistory, Roman Colonization and Middle Ages; osteology, funerary, bioarchaeology excavations and laboratories; applied field geophysics and geochemistry; digital curation and close-up photogrammetry applications; archaeo-metallurgy workshops, experimental archaeology and field museology workshops. ArchaeoTek’s core tenet is that academic knowledge on its own, without the appropriate skill sets to make it real in the current job market, is not particularly relevant. As a result, all our programs focus on skill acquisition and implementation through intensive hands-on experience and training, within an extensive academic context provided by a well published, highly trained staff. And might as well do it in a setting filled with culture and history, castles and churches, magic and legends, heroes and villains… Transylvania!!!

NEW AND UNIQUE PHOTOGRAMMETRY APPLICATIONS WORKSHOP
After the success of the program during the 2020-2022 campaigns, during the 2023 season, we will continue to offer several 5 day long Intensive Digital Curation and Applications in Close-Range Photogrammetry Workshop. The length of the program, combined with the amazing location, makes this program essential to anyone interested in a new and highly marketable skill set.
ArchaeoTek's Ninth International Student Colloquium on Bioarchaeology and Osteology was a great success. Congratulations to all the students and staff whose research and dedication made it such a great event. Check ArchaeoTek's Community Facebook page timeline for the Colloquium program.
