Field Schools in the Southeastern United States



Ngoldwe


I was wondering if there are any great field schools in the southeastern U.S. that would give great experience in field and lab techniques and would be a major positive on future resumees.  In particular I am thinking those that would be in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would suggest contacting the universities and colleges in your area that have an anthropology program or have an archaeologist on staff/faculty. Unfortunately, the shovelbums field school directory does not have much information pertaining to the southeast.

That's probably the best advice that can be said.  I know all the large state universities in Tennessee have a field school that they work on if not multiple ones at some universities.

my school, App State, does one at the biltmore estates on a hopewell mound every other year but i feel like it may be for current students.  you could email them and try though.

I know for a fact that you would be able to join the Auburn University field school this summer, for credit or no.
