Community Outreach



From former ArchaeoTek students, project participants and the community at large, this would probably give anyone interested in going on an anthropological adventure in Transylvania the best advice out there!!! So here's what to expect, how to do it right and how to really enjoy it!!!


After all:

"Archaeology without humanity

is the driest dust that blows"

Sir Mortimer "Ric" Wheeler

Archaeology from the Earth


ArchaeoTek in the News


In the last few years, ArchaeoTek and its projects has seen a tremendous increase in Romanian media coverage at local, regional, national and even international levels, in both Romanian and Hungarian. We believe that one of our roles as anthropologists is to make our work relevant to the local communities and to be sure that both our projects and our results are open to the public. Although all the articles are either in Romanian or Hungarian (Google Translate), if you want to have a peek to see what we look like in the field and lab, here it is!!!


Our Most Important Resource for our Participants

Where you can find thousands of pictures shared by our students and project participants, documenting their experiences in Transylvania!!!





  • The outstanding success of our 2018 and 2019 GPR projects, the Applied Field Geophysics Workshop - GPR Applications, prompted us to buy a second GPR unit with a different central frequency and a different configuration. As a result, our participants will have the unique opportunity to get fully proficient on a 250MHz GPR system, in a cart configuration, as well as 500MHz system, in a rough terrain configuration.

  • Furthermore, participants who are committed to expand their field skill set can register to our new Geophysics Exploration and Field Excavation program. It is a 4 week program, combining the GPR Applications Workshop (5 days) and  Roman Villa Excavation (3 weeks). Participants save $400 over the combined costs of the individual programs.



This year, COVID-19 caught us (and the entire world) unprepared. But we have learned our lessons and we are setting up our 2021 projects accordingly. We will be taking all the necessary prophylactic measures to keep our staff, our participants and our hosts safe, while providing, as usual, an educational and training experience to the highest standards.

All our projects will be back in 2021 and we are looking forward to a season of archaeology, bioarchaeology, osteology and ground penetrating radar (GPR) exploration!!!
