TRU Archaeology Field School

ANTH 3060 and ANTH 4110

The nine credit archaeology field school comprises two courses, ANTH 3060 (6 credits) "Summer Field Training in Archaeology," and ANTH 4110 (3 credits) "Prehistory of a Special Area in the New World." Students undertake six weeks of fieldwork and laboratory analysis at an archaeological site, normally in British Columbia. Students who do not have the prerequisites will need to contact the instructor for permission.

The course provides students with hand-on training in archaeological survey, mapping, excavation and recording techniques, as well as lab analysis, interpretation of artifact and faunal remains, and reporting.
