Each year the project welcomes Hungarian and British students from Universities in Budapest, Pécs, Southampton and Cambridge who are keen to gain experience of excavating at one of the richest and most important Bronze Age sites in Central Europe. The site also attracts students of other nationalities from Universities around Europe and beyond. All students work together in a single trench, resulting in a stimulating international environment.
