Archaeology Field School

The Department of Anthropology Archaeology Field School involves students directly with multiple phases of archaeological research , including survey, excavation, documentation, and artifact curation and analysis. Work is conducted to professional standards. Students get hands-on training and have taken part in unique discoveries in Midwestern prehistory.

The field school is offered during summer sessions at local sites (in many cases on the SIUE campus), and can be taken for 3 to 6 credits. Site reports, photos and video from previous years' field schools are available.

Apply for Field School

Applications for the summer session field schools are due in early/mid spring semester. Students must complete an application and liability waiver. Materials should be submitted to Dr. Julie Zimmermann (julzimm@siue.edu).
