On 18 April 2023, Ass.Prof. of History and Cultural Heritage Andjese Fusaro, together with MA students of the Archaeology Department, visited several tepes (artificial mounds) in Jomboy district (north-east of Samarkand), led by Professor Khikmatullah Khoshimov of the Institute of Archaeology, who is a native of the area.
This event was part of the “Research Methodology in Archaeological Sciences” course. The trip was a practical lesson on the activities that should be carried out during research in the field.
In addition, it was an important opportunity to show students how to behave when archaeological materials are discovered and how to preserve cultural heritage and archaeological contexts intact for future generations and future research work.
