Discovering Our Past Through An Historical Archaeology Field School II

June 24 - 28, 2019

Curriculum History
This course is designed for teachers of grades 4 to 12 who have previously taken the Level I course. In this course, teachers will act as group leaders directing one or more groups of children, adults, and teachers taking the level I course. They may also be digging. As part of the out-of class assignment, you will produce an archaeological report on a section of the excavation during the week. The workshop will consist of one week (five days) of field school in which teachers will learn about, participate in, and help to direct a portion of an authentic archaeological dig. SPECIAL INFORMATION: This course involves manual labor in the outdoors on an actual archaeological site. Duties may include shoveling and moving buckets of dirt, and moving small to medium sized rocks and bricks. You will be digging all five days of the course. Wear appropriate clothing you do not mind getting dirty, including long pants, sturdy shoes, and a wide brim hat. With prior notice, we can provide alternative activities on-site for teachers unable to do the manual labor. Bring your own lunch. It will be offered for 2 Graduate Credits or for 60 hours toward Act 48.
