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.
