Colonial Williamsburg 2012 Archaeological Field School
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in collaboration with College of William and Mary will offer two sessions of a five-week (6 credit) field school in historical archaeology between May and August 2012 (ANTH 225/425). The 2012 field school will take place at the site of the eighteenth-century Bray School - a school founded for the religious education of African American children in Williamsburg. Participants will receive intensive hands-on training in archaeological excavation techniques and recording, as well as the identification of common eighteenth-century artifacts. They will be introduced to archaeology’s specialties, including Conservation, Public Archaeology, and Zooarchaeology, through lectures and required reading. As in past years, the upcoming excavation will focus on public interpretation. Students interact with visitors on a daily basis, providing site background as well as interpretation of the excavation currently underway.
Participants can register for the program through the College of William and Mary (www.wm.edu/registrar).
