2018 Field School in Southwest New Mexico (US)


Join Archaeology Southwest and the University of Arizona this summer for the 2018 season of our Preservation Archaeology Field School!  Students will earn 7 hours of undergraduate or graduate credit through the University of Arizona while investigating how ancient communities formed during an era of migration and social change.

Our team will excavate at the 14th-century Gila River Farm site in beautiful southwest New Mexico. We will also record sites on survey, analyze what we find in the lab, and learn to make and use ancient tools.  Field trips to archaeological sites, visits to contemporary Native American communities, and public outreach events in our project area emphasize communication with diverse audiences and reinforce the principles of Preservation Archaeology as we focus on recovering maximum information with limited impacts on the archaeological record.  This field school is certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists.

Funding is available for qualified undergraduate students
through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF REU) program.  Applications are due March 5; for more information, see or contact Dr. Karen Schollmeyer at
