Check out Kenze Burkhart 15’.
"Hey everyone! My name is Kenze and this fall will be my fourth semester in the treehouse!
I’m currently studying abroad in Italy, a short train ride from Pisa, at an Archaeological field school run by The Ohio State University and the University of Pisa! I’ll be here for a total of 6 weeks excavating at the site of a medieval church and monastery. The general focus of the school is Bioarchaeology, which means we focus mainly on the age, sex, social status, and diet of individuals in hopes of learning more about the residents of Badia Pozzeveri.
The section of the site that I am working on is the Northern cemetery. This area of the cemetery has two main phases: Medieval (11th-14th century) and Modern (19th century). The modern section contains burials from the 1855 cholera epidemic, which we are hoping will provide us with some insight into the spread of the disease across Europe!
I have also had the opportunity to travel to other parts of Italy such as Florence, Venice, and the Italian Alps!
It is an incredible experience! The photo included above is the first burial I had the privilege of working on!
