The Great Dismal Swamp Archaeology Field School

This intensive and hands-on training course takes place in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge that is located in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. As part of a larger research team, students learn many different archaeological fieldwork methods, including various excavation techniques, GPS recordation, precision survey techniques, and scientific documentation methods. In learning the craft of archaeology in this course, student participants are directly helping the project by recovering important information on resistance communities that included Native Americans and African American Maroons that formed between ca. 1607 and 1860 in one of North America's largest swamps. Meets with ANTH-560 N01/N02/N03/N04.
