Field Schools

Archaeology field schools provide students with an opportunity for experiential learning. Through on-site instruction in survey and excavation methods, material culture, and interpretation of finds, students learn about Archaeology in practice. Field schools can also be an opportunity for an interested non-archaeologist to gain hands-on experience in the field. 

Stay up-to-date with upcoming field schools by following the Georgia Archaeology Field Schools Facebook Page!
