Balkan Heritage Field School (BHFS – BHFS website) started in 2008 as an educational program of practice-oriented courses in the fields of archaeology and historic preservation taught in English. Currently the courses take place in Bulgaria, Greece, Republic of Macedonia and Montenegro. They are targeted to both academic and non-academic audiences (mostly volunteers and individuals with a need for specialized pre- and early career training). All courses are affiliated with ongoing research and conservation projects conducted by BHFS partner heritage institutions and have been accredited by prominent universities: New Bulgarian University (Bulgaria), Connecticut College (USA, through Institute for Field Research), University of California Los Angeles Extension (USA, through Institute for Field Research) and the Department of Classics, Queen’s University (Canada). Since 2008, BHF has conducted more than 100 field schools (with durations ranging from 2 to 8 weeks) attended by approximately 1500 students, ages 16 to 79, from 59 countries.
THE BALKAN HERITAGE FOUNDATION’S MISSION IS TO SUPPORT THE PROTECTION, CONSERVATION, MANAGEMENT AND PROMOTION OF CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL (BOTH TANGIBLE AND INTANGIBLE) HERITAGE OF SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE AS PRECONDITION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF THE REGION.
