Archaeological Projects and Field Schools

Anthropology Department, Maxwell School, Syracuse University

Formal field training schools in Historical Archaeology are offered each summer in Central New York and in the Caribbean. Each year these popular programs have been filled to capacity. In addition to providing excellent training in field archaeology, these projects have resulted in the acquisition of significant data sets. During the fall and spring terms weekend excavations and site visitations are organized by the faculty.
