Are you serious about archaeology? Want to give it try? This course will teach you the methods employed by archaeologists in both the field and, as an extension of the field, the laboratory. You will learn how to conduct field surveys, map a site, undertake excavation, and pursue laboratory analysis of artifacts. This is a hands-on course that will entail actual fieldwork, including digging. It will prepare and position you to pursue more advanced archaeological fieldwork in the context of a field school, field research with a professor, and independent honors research.
