Applications for the undergraduate and graduate Archaeological Fieldschools scheduled for the summer of 2010 were due on March 22, 2010, but applications will still be accepted until the courses are filled.

The fieldschool is required for all undergraduate Anthropology–Archaeology Track majors, but is also open to all Anthropology majors and other interested students. There is no prerequisite.

The undergraduate Archaeological Fieldschool (Anth 320) begins on May 24, 2010, a week before the start of Summer 1 and ends on July 2, 2010. The fieldschool is for six credits and meets five days (Monday through Friday) each week. Students should arrange housing in Indiana and will meet each morning in McElhaney G-2 before going to the field site as a group. Transportation will be provided. Two graduate courses are offered.

Anthropology 581 is the Basic Fieldschool for graduate students. It is scheduled to meet from May 17 to June 11, 2010. A second course, Anthropology 720 Advanced Archaeological Field Methods, is scheduled to meet from June 14 to July 9, 2010. Graduate students can register for one or both of the courses, although prior field experience is required to register for the Advanced Field Methods Course. Both the undergraduate and graduate fieldschools will meet from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each class day.
