The Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology Project

The Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology (BAKOTA) project is studying a cemetery population (Békés Jégvermi-kert) in Eastern Hungary during the Bronze Age, and aims to understand how this region differs from neighbouring areas.

Our primary area of interest is to understand how travel and participation in trade networks affected sociocultural change and the emergence of social inequality in later European prehistory (2000-1500 BC). The BAKOTA (Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology) project is focusing on the archaeological investigations at the Békés Koldus-Zug site cluster - Békés 103, Békés 107, Békés 108 and it includes surface survey, excavations and remote sensing approaches.

The geophysical survey was conducted by the Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing & Archeo-environment of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies/Foundation of Research & Technology, Hellas (F.O.R.T.H.) under the auspices of BAKOTA (supervision by Dr. Paul Duffy, director of the Bronze Age Körös Off-Tell Archaeology project (BAKOTA) in Hungary and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto).
