2018 cfs 270x206

College students from across the nation have come to the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center campus to prepare for a career in archaeology and anthropology through our college-accredited Archaeological Field School.

The program—under the direction of Dr. Susan Ryan, the Center’s Director of Archaeology—is a five-week experiential learning program in which students learn the fundamentals of archaeological site identification and recording, excavation, and basic artifact processing and analyses along with instrument and remote sensing surveying techniques.

Crow Canyon’s program, which is certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists, is designed to give the students the practical skills they’ll need to go into archaeology as a profession.  Students in the program are also eligible to receive up to six hours of undergraduate or graduate-level credit through Colorado’s Adams State University.

You can follow along with the student’s progress on the 2018 Crow Canyon Archaeological Field School blog. For more information about the Archaeological Field School program, click here.
