Pimu Catalina Archaeological Field School

The Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Field School is a collaborative research project with Tongva/Gabrielino tribal members, the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy and California State University, Northridge. The field school runs from July 18 to August 15, 2014 and is Register of Professional Archaeologists (RPA) certified.

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.
