Field Research and Study Abroad

Faculty-led fieldwork and study abroad programs are a hallmark of our anthropology program.

Study Abroad: Field School in Crete

This yearly summer project focuses on archaeological anthropology involving the excavation, recovery and study of the human skeletal remains at the burial ground of Orthi Petra, as well as technical field/lab drawing tutorials in archaeology and physical anthropology. Human ecology and the dynamics of village and city life are studied, local cuisine is sampled, museums and archaeological sites from Minoan to medieval periods are visited, and cultural events in the city of Rethymnon may be attended (art exhibits, musical and/or theatrical events).
