The Center for American Archeology hosts the ASU Archaeological Field School, offering six-week for-credit sessions in archaeological field methods, bioarchaeology and human osteology, and geomatics (geophysical testing, geoarchaeology, GIS). Led by Jane Buikstra, the field school is a collaborative program of scholars from Arizona State University, the Center for American Archeology, the Illinois State Museum, and the Center for Advanced Spatial Technology at the University of Arkansas.
Excavations during the 2012 season will be conducted at the Mound House site (11GE7), a Middle Woodland mound site located in the Illinois River Valley floodplain. Investigations there are part of an ongoing, collaborative project involving field archaeology, geophysical testing, and geoarchaeology to understand long-term site use, and cultural and natural process of landform modification.
Applications for all programs will be accepted beginning in February 2012. For more information, please visit the field school website!
Dates: June 10 - July 21, 2012
