Archaeological Field Methods in Alaska

This course, specifically for undergraduate and graduate students with no previous archaeological experience, focuses on building important skills by using state-of-the-art field-based research technologies and teaching the fundamentals of archaeological survey, excavation, stratigraphic profiling and site mapping. You can travel to the Shaw Creek Archaeology Research station in the middle Tanana Valley and participate in an ongoing research program pertaining to the late Pleistocene Peopling of the Americas.

We are not accepting applications for the 2020 field season.
