We are pleased to announce the 2015 H2ARP (Hawai`i Historical and Archaeological Research Project) field school in Windward North Kohala on the Island of Hawai`i. Our research focuses on the documentation and analysis of agricultural sites and systems in the forests, gullies and valleys which characterize the Eastern slopes of Kohala mountain. Here, traditional Hawaiian agriculturalists created largely irrigated systems of intensive taro production beginning in the 13th century and extending well into the 19th. 
Graduate and undergraduate students will receive training in field survey, documentation, and remote sensing techniques. In addition, students will have to opportunity to visit important cultural and agricultural sites across the Kohala Penninsula. This training program emphasizes a conservation ethic along with outreach to local communities in Kohala to reconstruct patterns of agricultural and social development in a setting critical for the eventual rise of an integrated, unified state level society.
