Primary Instructor:

Through field and lab work, students receive in-depth training in archaeological techniques of excavation, site mapping, and artifact recording and analysis. By investigating cache pits (storage features) and associated living sites along Douglas and Burt Lake, students are active participants in a research program examining the ways American Indian communities in Northern Michigan modified the landscape for millennia prior to European Contact. Set at the University of Michigan Biological Station, students have the unique opportunity to experience archaeology in a multidisciplinary and sustainable setting. Field and laboratory work is integrated with public outreach, field trips, and lectures on archaeological methods and regional Native North American precontact and contact history.

Meets for 5 weeks, extended to June 24, 2010

Costs: tuition for 6 credits, plus room and board fee (estimated to be $750)
