The aims of the project are twofold:

Investigations to date

Activities in 2017

The 2017 excavation will take place between Monday, 26 June - Sunday, 6 August 2017. We will continue to excavate trench 1, where we have reached the natural in parts and will also continue to excavate a pit in the SW part of the trench. There is also a huge backlog of finds to record. We will stay in the dig-house on the Bronze Age tell of Bobald in Carei.
