Anthropology | FIELD WORK IN ARCHAEOLOGY
P405 | 0066 | Peebles
Meets from May 13th - June 19th 2003
In the summer of 2003, Indiana University and the Glenn A. Black
Laboratory of Archaeology once will again offer an archaeological field
school at a Late Prehistoric Native American site near Bloomington,IN.
The majority of the course will be devoted to hands-on instruction in
archaeological survey and excavation techniques, the documentation of
archaeological remains, and the interpretation of archaeological data.
Preliminary laboratory analysis, including the cleaning, identification,
and cataloguing of artifacts, will be interspersed with the fieldwork.
Intensive lectures in the first few days will provide students with a
background in various aspects of Indiana prehistory and with information
on a variety of research methods and field techniques.
The field school is an important part of the research program of the Glenn
A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology at Indiana University. Most field
schools over the last decade also have focused on Late Prehistoric sites
in central Indiana. The result of this work is an extensive array of
published reports on settlement patterns, site structure and function,
remote sensing, and analyses of pottery and of plant and animal remains
from the excavated sites.
