Summer Field Schools in Historical Archaeology

Posted by Admin On 11:32:00 AM
The University of Virginia is proud to sponsor summer archaeological field schools at three of Virginia's premier historic sites: the first permanent English settlement at Jamestown, Thomas Jefferson's primary home and plantation at Monticello, and Jefferson's personal retreat and plantation at Poplar Forest. These field schools offer a unique opportunity for students to make a contribution to the research and interpretation of early American history. Students receive graduate credits (Anthropology 5589) from the University of Virginia.

Each field school provides students a foundation in field of historical archaeology and offers the opportunity to learn the practical skills of site survey, excavation, recording, and laboratory procedures. A good part of each day is spent doing excavation which requires physical endurance and excellent health. On-site instruction, lectures, discussion sessions, and field trips to other archaeological sites complement the field work.
