The volunteers will continue the work from the previous years in the area of the fortress Kupinik, destroyed in 1521 when Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent conquered this region. You’ll join the team of volunteers led by a local archaeologist in the continuance of the field works in the compound of the Kupinik fortress in Kupinovo. The workcamps of last years and this year are the first conservation works on the fortress probably since it was destroyed. The volunteers will clear the area under the vertical parts of the fortress walls and the paths towards the fortress connecting it with the village. The volunteers will also participate in organizing and help during the local manifestation – The days of the DRAGONS. This manifestation is being held in the honour of Serbian Despot Vuk Grgurevic Brankovic, remembered by people as The Dragon Fiery Vuk, who was a member of the Knight’s Order of the Dragon, and he used to rule in Kupinik, where he died 533 years ago. The core of the program are knight games, an exhibition of medieval weapons, a medieval bazaar and table and a concert of spiritual music, and trying out medieval armour and weapons to illustrate knightly struggles. Also, organizing several workshops: calligraphy (art of fine writing) and forging, as well as archery workshops, in an attractive and interactive manner, visitors will conjure up the beauty of old crafts and skills.

Kupinovo is 50 km south-west of Belgrade in the Srem Region. It is well known by the famous special protected area “Obedska bara”, the oldest protected area in Europe. There are some very important cultural and historical monuments in this area which will be shown to the volunteers during leisure time.

The Srem Region has been permanently inhabited since the early Stone Age with many clear signs of life just below the ground surface. Thanks to those signs we are able to see activities, ways of life even the way of thinking of the inhabitants of past time. The overall excavations of all historical layers show that this part of the region has an extraordinary rich cultural background. The locality “Ethno house” in Kupinovo village should provide evidence on communities living here since the Iron Age. Many of the localities are endangered due to agriculture or construction, especially in industrial zones, but not this one. The first excavations started five years ago and after four workcamps the results were very positive.

This is a perfect workcamp for students of archaeology/history or anyone especially interested in archaeology and history.
