INAS Archaeology field school

Ossabow Island field school crew 2016.

The field school in archaeology provides undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to participate in an archaeological research project. Students are introduced to the methods of archaeological survey, excavation, data and materials recovery, recording and processing of data, and the interpretation and preservation of results. Our field schools involve students in all phases of investigation, including survey, test unit excavations, and large-scale data recovery. Students will be trained in basic laboratory processing and analysis and may work collaboratively to present the results of their research in a professional poster. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to critically examine how archaeological knowledge is constructed and expressed. For more information, visit: or
