The Körös Consortium rides again...
We are back at it! And it feels so good!
After a two-year hiatus, we are finally back in Vésztő in our home-away-from-home, the Musli Pánzio!
As we embark on a new phase of work that seeks to compare the process of tell formation in the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, the Körös Regional Archaeological Project is combining forces with the BAKOTA project to establish the first formal collaboration of the Körös Consortium. We started field work on Friday at Békés-Várdomb to continue the tract collection we initiated in 2016.
As part of the broader work of the Consortium, Dani Riebe is here to continue her work on the PIPP project at the site of Csökmő with her collaborator, János Dani. Billy Ridge is also back to continue his Copper Age dissertation research on the CASP project.
We also were thrilled to welcome two new collaborators who have joined us from Cardiff University, Ashley Lingle and Jerrod Seifert. They are conservators who are here working with us to help preserve the stratigraphy of the Vésztő-Mágor tell.
