As an anthropology student, one of the best ways to get a sense of a people is by going step-by-step through its past. This study abroad program follows the Celts’ early history throughout central Europe, prior to their arrival in the British Isles. While on this study abroad program, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the crypts of Paris, the museums, archaeological sites and reconstructions of Frankfurt and Hallstatt, and the beautiful sites of Prague.

Note: The escalating non-refundable payments above reflect the fact that trip costs per person depend on the number of participants, and late dropouts raise the cost for everyone else on the trip. This is an attempt to partially mitigate such problems, although we will make an effort to refund as much money as possible to those who must drop out. Participants may also buy trip insurance that would cover unexpected late dropping out of the program.
