The heritage workshop in Cetinje, Montenegro

Oxford Archaeology recently conducted a capacity building workshop in Cetinje, Montenegro, for the Ministry of Culture and the British Council. The workshop concentrated on project design and management in the cultural area with specific reference to the EU's Instrument of Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA).

Rob Early, OA's Head of International Business, focused on two largely untouched archaeological sites dated to the Roman and medieval periods. Funds are sought for setting up international research centres and developing the profile of the two sites for cultural tourism. Montenegro currently has only 25 professional archaeologists and no university faculty for archaeology or heritage.
