The Department of Anthropology at the University of North Dakota invites
students to attend its Archaeological Field School in June and July,
2005. The course is being offered in cooperation with the North Dakota
Army National Guard. Field school students will participate in test
excavations at multiple prehistoric sites in eastern and northwestern
North Dakota. Campsite and stone feature sites will be investigated.
Field school students will learn standard archeological field
techniques, such as proper excavation methods, record keeping, site
mapping via digital means (GPS, total station) and by paper, profiling
and soil descriptions, photography, and so on.
This year, we are offering archaeological field school participation as
part of a new student intern program. Internships will be offered to
students accepted into the class over a period of six weeks from June 6
to July 15, 2005. Students will receive up to six semester hours of
undergraduate credit in Anthropology 380, Field Techniques in
Archaeology. One hour of class credit will be earned for each week of
participation, with minimum participation of two weeks required. Student
interns will be paid at a rate of $5.15 per hour for each hour of
participation, up to a maximum of 40 hours per week. Only a limited
number of student interns can be accommodated under this program.
Preference will be given to those students who can attend the full
six-week session. Application deadline is April 15, 2004.
