Our intensive Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) program allows (if interested) our participants to acquire a highly marketable skill set, becoming proficient in both GPR systems (250MHz and 500MHz) and configurations used in near subsurface investigations, in both rough terrain and cart configurations. The field component will allow them to explore the Roman town of Micia as well as a collapsed medieval castle, in two fundamentally different environments.
Our participants will not only explore the archaeology of the region, but will have the opportunity to sample the magic of Transylvania, through its amazing historical and natural landscapes.
Our programs are available for both credit students and non-credit participants.
