Corin Pursell

Be a part of decades of ongoing annual archaeological field school research through Washington University's University College, at the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site near Collinsville, Illinois.  Please join us for our 2018 Field School in archaeology.

Excavations will focus on a location adjacent to a prehistoric monument near Cahokia's East Plaza, pursuing additional information on an important center of craft production near Mound 34. Three weeks of excavations will be conducted and students will learn a broad range of skills relevant to American prehistoric archaeology.

Cahokia Mounds is the largest ancient Native American community in the United States and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We offer training in the excavation of a Mississippian culture site, and we are not exclusive to Washington University students. Any graduating senior, undergraduate student, or graduate student can register here starting March 28.
