NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2017
June 2 – July 14 (6 weeks)
Taught through the Department of Anthropology at the University of Georgia.
Students will enroll in 12 credit hours (Georgia in-state) or 6 credit hours (out of state) of ANTH 4200 – Archaeological Field Methods and ANTH 4240 – Archaeological Laboratory Methods. There are no additional fees aside from approximately $100 in personal archaeological field equipment. (We will provide you with a trowel and notebook).
Working within the overarching goals of the project, students will conduct geophysical survey of selected areas of the site, process and interpret their results, and help to select excavation units to investigate possible cultural features. Students will then work with field school instructors to develop a poster presentation which communicates the results of their research.
In the course of the six-week program students will learn:
Archaeological and geophysical survey methods
Mapping and documentation
Processing of geophysical data
We will be staying near the site in Stewart Co., GA during the week and students will have the option to return home on weekends. Students will be camping at our field house and lab, where kitchen and washing facilities are available. Each person is responsible for their own breakfast and lunch, dinner will be communal.
