TRU Archaeology Field School (ANTH 3060)

The nine credit archaeology field school comprises two courses, ANTH 3060-6 "Summer Field Training in Archaeology," and ANTH 4110-3 "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.

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.
