gonzaleztennant

The 2014 Fort Charles Archaeological Project will continue last year's excavations at one of the Caribbean's earliest British forts. Preliminary analysis of the 2013 materials suggests a unique pattern of European and Afro-Caribbean interaction for more than two and a half centuries at the site. Our project, now in its second year, represents the first archaeological investigation of the site.

Students will learn traditional and advanced surveying methods, how to conduct pedestrian surveys, standard archaeological excavation techniques, and how to identify, catalog, and analyze artifacts. There will be weekly lectures on Nevisian archaeology, history, and culture by project staff and experts.

Dates: May 24 - June 14, 2014
Costs: 3 hours credit (~$2500); $1000 room & board; round-trip airfare (~$600)
Undergraduate and graduate course credits available!
