Student Sara S. and alumna Dani R. in Hungary

Sara studying abroad in Rome in 2009.
Archaeology senior Sara Spatafore is one of seven undergraduate and graduate students in the country selected to participate in a National Science Foundation funded multidisciplinary research project in Hungary, Greece and the USA in 2011.  The Koros Regional Archaeology Project, which is funded by the NSF International Research Experiences for Students Program, will require students to participate in an archaeological research project in Hungary and design an independent research project; work with scientists in Greece, Hungary and the USA to analyze and interpret their data; present their results at conferences; publish their results in peer-reviewed journals; and disseminate their findings via the web and other media.  The Koros team is studying prehistoric European agricultural villages on the Great Hungarian Plain occupied between 5500 and 4500 BCE.

Archaeology alumna Danielle Riebe (’08), currently a PhD candidate in Central Asian Archaeology at the University of Illinois-Chicago, will also participate in the field project in Hungary as the GPS Technician.
