Projects Abroad have spent over 25 years helping volunteers and interns fulfill their potential and make the world a better place. All projects seek to add significant value to the environment, to local people and the organisations they support.

Travel back through time to the mighty Roman empire and do practical archaeology work with the Archaeology Internship in Romania. You’ll work at excavation sites around Romania and learn from an experienced archaeologist as you dig up the past. This is a wonderful way to get hands-on with history and add practical work experience to your CV.

Experience

As an archaeological volunteer in Romania, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved directly. Here are some of the things you could do:

  • Carry out fieldwork including excavations and assessing restoration sites
  • Spend time working in a museum, helping with a range of duties from presentations to pottery reconstruction
  • Indoor research such as writing, cleaning, measuring, and inventory during winter months

More information regarding the internship program can be found on the host program website
