In this course students will participate in an archaeological research project. They will gain knowledge about basic archaeology skills and hands-on experience in archaeological methods, learn about research design, and develop their analytical skills through the collection, recording, and interpretation of diverse kinds of data. Civic engagement is an important aspect of this course as it involves partnerships with local organizations and community members. Students will be interpreting their findings and sharing them with members of the research team and the general public. This is a three week intensive field school that will meet 5 days a week for 8 hours a day (120 hours total). There will be additional, optional opportunities for field trips and special lectures.
