Archaeology Field School

The EKU Anthropology Program has partnered with the US Forest Service and the Daniel Boone National Forest in a program of archaeological survey and excavation to investigate archaeological sites within the forest.

This partnership assists the Forest Service in researching and managing sites within the forest and, at the same time, provides opportunities for hands-on learning and training of EKU students in archaeological field and laboratory methods which prepares you for entry level jobs in archaeology or graduate school. For students who don’t plan on pursuing archaeology as a career, field school offers a unique hands-on learning experience, working as part of a team, and skills recording and collecting data.

EKU Anthropology offers the Archaeology Field School to EKU students every two years. Students earn six credit hours. You can find the course listed as ANT 470 Field Methods in Archaeology.

For more information, contact Associate Professor Jon Endonino.
