Primary Instructor:

Through this intensive course, involving field and lab work, students receive in-depth training in archaeological techniques of excavation, site mapping and artifact recording and analysis. By investigating Native American cache pits (storage features) and associated habitation sites in University of Michigan Biological Station property along Douglas Lake, students have a unique opportunity to understand the ways communities in northern Michigan engaged with the natural landscape prior to European contact. Field and laboratory work are closely integrated with lectures on archaeological method and theory, as well as the prehistory and history of Michigan and the Upper Great Lakes region. Public archaeology forms another important component of this course. In previous years, students shared information about their field work with students in area schools, members of the broader UMBS and UM community, local residents, and regional tribal members.
