Archaeology is the study of the human past through its material remains. So much evidence of human activity on earth exists outside the realm of written records that archaeology is of primary importance in reconstructing past human life ways. Bridging the gap between the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, archaeologists integrate many types of evidence in order to shed light on the origins of our species, Homo sapiens sapiens and development through time of so many different cultural manifestations. Introduction to Archaeology provides an overview of the methods, theories and models used by archaeologists to better understand past human societies, from the formulation of a research question, through the processes of survey and excavation, to the analysis of data, and the interpretation of the results.

Field Research Archaeology provides an intensive and rewarding archaeological field and lab experience for undergraduate students interested in archaeology as an academic major and for those interested in pursuing a career in the field of Cultural Resource Management (CRM). Field school is geared towards undergraduate students with interests in North American Archaeology or related fields including history, geology, geography, soil science and the natural sciences. The goal is to introduce students to the techniques of archaeological site location, artifact identification, excavation, mapping, and material analysis in a fun but rigorous academic and applied setting.
