Anthropology > Archaeology Field School

The department offers a summer program that affords students with the opportunity to participate in an actual archaeological excavation. Emphasis is placed on excavation techniques, methods of classification and analysis, and anthropological interpretation. At present, efforts are concentrated on Paleo-Indian, Archaic, Woodland and Contact Period sites in the mid-Hudson region of New York.
