ASU Kampsville Field School

July 9-July 20, 2019

The Center for American Archeology is proud to host the annual Arizona State University Kampsville Field School at the Center for American Archeology. The field school offers two concurrent six-week, nine-credit hour programs. 

Students may enroll for one of the following tracks:

Fieldwork will be at Golden Eagle site, the only known prehistoric site with an enclosing embankment in the Illinois River Valley. CAA has been investigating this enigmatic site since 2013, beginning with large-scale remote sensing surveys across the site that revealed intact archaeological deposits such as the ditch-and-embankment structure enclosing the site. In 2014, we began initial archaeological testing of the ditch-and-embankment enclosure. Subsequent fieldwork has focused on other parts of the enclosure and the portion of the site near mound 2. In 2019, we’ll continue to investigate occupations and building sequences at the site.

Enrollments are open to undergraduate and graduate students from any university.
