Arizona State University Field School in Kampsville, IL
June 15-July 24, 2015
The Center for American Archeology is proud to host the annual Arizona State University Field School in Kampsville, IL. The field school offers three concurrent six-week, nine-credit hour programs. Students may enroll for one of the following tracks:
- Bioarcheology & Human Osteology
- Field Archeology & Geophysical Testing
- Geomatics (Geophysical Testing & GIS)
Fieldwork will be conducted at Golden Eagle site, the only known prehistoric site with an enclosing embankment in the Illinois River Valley. In 2013 and 2014, CAA archeologists conducted large-scale remote sensing surveys across the site, revealing intact archeological deposits, as well as evidence of a ditch-and-embankment structure encompassing the site. Excavations of Golden Eagle began in 2014 with initial testing of the ditch-and-embankment, revealing evidence of building sequences. In 2015 we’ll continue to explore this enigmatic site.
Enrollments are open to undergraduate and graduate students from any university.
