Prospective students   


If you've ever considered any (or all) of the following questions:
  • Could Archaeology or Conservation (or both) be my future job or hobby?
  • What is real archaeological and conservation work like and can I do it?
  • Why are the Balkans so important to the history and archaeology of the Old World and what is hidden out there?
  • How can I learn, explore, volunteer, have fun and contribute to a cause all at the same time?

Join a Balkan Heritage Field School (BHFS) today to get the answer.


The Balkan Heritage Field School provides opportunities for people interested either professionally or personally in archaeology and conservation to:

  • gain/expand their hands-on experience in archaeology, documentation and conservation of monuments and artifacts;
  • enhance their knowledge about the civilizations of the Old World and their skills in various aspects of field archaeology, documentation and conservation of monuments and artifacts;
  • broaden their intercultural experience and establish new contacts worldwide;
  • experience authentic Balkan hospitality and the heritage of so many ancient civilizations.

For students or specialists who need the experience for academic or professional reasons, BHFS guarantees high-quality training, prospective fields for study and cooperation, references from reputed international experts and credit hours by the New Bulgarian University.
