2016 Late Pleistocene Archaeology Field School in the Tanana Valley, Alaska


The Adelphi University Department of Anthropology will initiate a summer 2016 archaeological field school in reconnaissance, survey, and site excavations at the recently discovered Holzman site in the Shaw Creek region of the Tanana Valley, Interior Alaska. Initial test excavations reveal a series of late Pleistocene occupations containing large mammal fauna, mammoth ivory fragments, and stone tools in deeply buried deposits. The Holzman site lies between the previously excavated Broken Mammoth and Mead archaeological sites and is near the Swan Point site each dated to the end of the Pleistocene. Learn fundamentals of archaeological excavation on a First Americans site!

Preference is provided for applications submitted earlier rather than later. Currently, there are still positions available and I’ll be reviewing and accepting applications until the course is full.
