Archaeology Field School Description

The field school trains students to use anthropological field methods to understand human biological variation. This course has five primary goals:
1) To train students in study design techniques. This
includes participant recruitment and biographical interview data;
2) To provide students with hands-on training in human biological variation field methods including phenotype and DNA collection protocols;
3) To provide students with basic training in biological anthropology data analysis;
4) To provide students with a practical working knowledge of how these various methods are used to answer anthropological research questions;
5) To have students conduct independent research projects over the course of five weeks. In addition to hands on field training, students will also take field trips to culturally important sites in the region.
