Adelphi Archaeology Field School in Alaska


The Adelphi University Department of Anthropology will initiate summer 2011 archaeological field reconnaissance and site excavations at multiple sites in the Susitna River valley. Field school students will travel on their own accord to the quaint mountain village of Talkeetna, Alaska located along the confluence of the Susitna, Talkeetna, and Chulitna rivers mid-way between Anchorage and Fairbanks. In addition to participation in an ongoing research program, students will experience unspoiled Alaska wilderness, acquire important technological skills using state-of-the-art research technologies, and learn the fundamentals of archaeological excavation.  Expect this course to be physically demanding, at times, with hiking into remote Alaska wilderness and tent camping required.

A wide range of principal investigators have been assembled to offer instruction and mentorship to students interested in different career paths or specializations including taphonomy, geospatial, geoarchaeology, fauna and lithic analysis, ethnohistory, and cultural resource management.
