2016 College Field School


The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is sponsoring a college-accredited field school near Cortez, Colorado. Through immersion in a five-week experiential learning program, students will learn the fundamental techniques of archaeological site identification and recording, excavation, and basic artifact processing and analyses under the direction of Dr. Susan C. Ryan, Director of Archaeology. Additionally, students will learn instrument surveying and remote sensing surveying techniques. Evening programs, field trips, and public events expand these essential skills and present real-world opportunities to practice the principles of conservation archaeology.

Undergraduate and graduate students may enroll for 6 credit hours through Adams State University in Colorado ($55 per credit hour). The field school is certified RPA-5 by the Register of Professional Archaeologists.
