Dear friends and colleagues,
I hope you know that since 2015 we are working on developing the archaeological park from our beloved Călugareni /Mikháza. The only way to extend the Park is through the acquisition of new land stripes from the locals, but of course, this takes time and money. So, we entered a competition at the Rózsa Sándor 2. Népi Közpénztékozló Alap (a Hungarian Found with an almost untranslatable name) and we managed to get in to the 2nd round of the competition.
Now we need your support, please vote for our project on Facebook (you have to log in = Bejelentkezés) and do not forget that every vote is sacred! Please help also to advertise/share the project!
The project description is in Hungarian (if you do not understand you can use Google translate to get the main ideas), but I can assure you that the aim of the project is to buy some land and build a permanent home for Morzsi Mikházi.
You can vote till the 15th of March!
Project name: Krumplifüldből parkot (A park out of the potato field)
On the the 30th of November (Friday) from 18.30 will take place the exhibition opening intituled Five years of IDENTITY AND CULTURE in the building of the Historical and Archaeological Museum located in the medieval fortress of Târgu-Mureș.
The exhibited objects are results of the collaboration between students and professors of the Department of Industrial and Agricultural Building Design of the University of Technology and Economics in Budapest, works created during the summer-schools organized at Călugăreni. These were attained within an international, multianual research project (THE ROMAN LIMES AS EUROPEAN CULTURAL LANDSCAPE). The students had the opportunity to develop the results of their research in Transylvania, at the Students Conferene organized in the past five years. Within these, the students could analyze the possibilities of turistical potential of the Roman sites and the challenges related to the protection of these extremely valuable heritage.
Between the 30th of November and the 2nd of December will take place the 12th Transylvanian Archaeological Conference organized by the Mureș County Museum and the Pósta Béla Association. The event will be held in the building of the Historical and Archaeological Museum located in the Medieval fortress of Târgu-Mureș. The interested ones can participate at lectures presented by specialists in the different fields of historical periods, like prehistory, Ancient history, Migration period and Medieval period. Another interesting group of presentations will be related to research history, presenting the activity of pioneers of archaeology and history from former centuries.
Between the 23rd and the 30th of September in Cluj Napoca took place the 31st Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores Conference, on which members of our team also participated. The large scale conference gathered specialists of Roman pottery from all over the World.
The leading topic of the event was focusing on the economic relationship between local and imported ceramic products. Among the many extremely interesting presentations and posters, the team visited Porolissum, Apulum, Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa and Potaissa, having the opportunity to see in each site the locally produced wares. The exhibition, which gathered pottery from Roman Dacia and Moesia Inferior was opened during the conference, introducing also the Atlas of Roman pottery workshops from these two provinces.
