MONREPOS works together closely with the Johannes Gutenberg University at Mainz. Sabine Gaudzinski-Windheuser, Head of the MONREPOS institute, is also Professor at the Mainz Institute for Early History in the field of Pre- and Protohistoric Archaeology. Fundamental knowledge of the longest period of human history, an interdisciplinary orientation, scientific methodology and practical know-how are oriented towards the latest research results. Transmission of our results in a museum environment is one of our core responsibilities and therefore forms part of our teaching programme.


For your credentials in the context of university education, we offer you internships in the museum, on excavations and in the laboratory. On request, you can stay in one of our collegiate rooms during your stay in MONREPOS. Everything you need to know has been summarized here.
