In one of the leading studies of the ancient DNA, which was realized in the past years, among many renowned researchers, former participants of the Archaeology Program Dušan Boric and Dragana Antonovic, as well as the former head of Archaeology department Andrej Starović, also participated. The results of this research have been published in the new issue of Nature and you can see them here.
From March 1st to 5th, at Petnica Science Center, the winter course of archaeology will be held for high school students at the advanced level of the program. The aim of the course is to prepare the participants for successful realization of their research projects (either individual or group ones) during this calendar year. To help the participants in their work, theoretical lectures will be held with topics similar to their research projects.
In the period from February 21st to 27th, the Archaeology Winter school will be realized for high school students (who are participating for the first time) at the basic level of the program. Through a series of theoretical lectures and practical workshops, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the basic features of historical periods, techniques and methods applied in archaeological research, the correct approaches to multidisciplinary studies, and the nature of the scientific problems with which archeology as a scientific discipline deals.
At the end of November, the 16th Conference Step in Science was held at Petnica Science Center, where high school students presented their research projects. Among the numerous works, five most successful projects (work of six authors during 2017.) from the Archaeology program were presented as well.
At the end of November, the 75th issue of Petničkih sveski - Proceedings of the participants of Petnica Science Center was published.
