Field Schools

Field schools are a great way to experience archaeology in action. Most field schools take place in the summer and are administered by universities as part of a degree requirement. College students from other schools can often participate for credit hours. Many field schools also offer opportunities for the (non-student) general public to participate. Please contact the university for information about volunteering, visiting or joining a field school. (If we missed one, please send us the information to post.)

Please find information on field schools taking place in North Carolina.
