In this course, students will engage in research, analysis and curation of artifacts, and practice methods utilized by archaeologists to sample and excavate a site in Washtenaw County. This course will emphasize methods for fieldwork as well as non-field activities, such as historical research, artifact cleaning and analysis, post-field report writing, and community engagement. This course provides a hands-on introduction to field archaeology and prepares students for work in cultural resource management (CRM), while also fostering stewardship for local archaeological sites, which are important non-renewable cultural resources.
