In our seventh year, the field school provides students with practical working knowledge of survey, excavation, lab and cataloging methods while immersing them in the 9,000 years of prehistoric maritime history of the Tongva/Gabrielino nation. Students will also learn about how to apply cultural resource laws to public sector archaeological work.
Situated just off the coast of Los Angeles, Catalina Island was historically an important trading supply outpost for Southern California and beyond. The field school is part of the on-going Pimu Catalina Island
Archaeological Project (PCIAP), which is working to assess and protect archaeological sites on Catalina.
