Archaeology Field School Description


Learn the prehistory and history of a small island in the southern Caribbean from both a practical, hands-on approach and in the classroom, with specialists from around the world.

Excavate at the two oldest archaeological sites on the island Grand Bay and Sabazan.

Visit archaeologically and culturally significant sites, including petroglyphs, an early-1700s French fort, windmills, locations where Cuban forces fought against the US in the 1983 coup, and an organic chocolate factory.

Participate in ethnographic research focused on cultural heritage management.

Take scheduled weekend trips to hike nature trails and travel to offshore islands and remote beaches.

Professors Scott M. Fitzpatrick and Phil Scher in the Department of Anthropology will co-direct the program in conjunction with Dutch, British, and Carriacouan participants.
