Annual Summer Archaeological Field Schools

Since 1995, the Department has offered an annual summer field school in archaeology.

The course of instruction involves five weeks of intensive training in "how to do archaeology."

Past field school sites have included 1500-year-old Native American mound centers, late-18th-century-A.D. frontier forts, 19th-century slave cabins, and an early-mid-19th-century church.

Information on the Summer 2006 Archaeological Field School is available through the link to the "Castalian Springs" project below.
