A TFAHR team of eight teachers and students, along
with our Macedonian colleagues, worked a five-week
season in June and July 2006 at Gloska Cuka, near
Grciste in the lower Vardar Valley.  The following photos
illustrate the types of work we do, from the digging in
the field through documentation of the site and
processing of the finds.
