Archaeology Field School

Rogers Island//Fort Edward
Monday through Frida | 9am to 5pm (8CEUs)
Instructor: David R. Starbuck, Ph.D.

During the French and Indian War, Fort Edward was the setting for the largest British military encampment in the American colonies, including the largest British fort, an extensive settlement on Rogers Island, and several large sutlers’ (merchants’) houses where soldiers and officers bought some of their supplies. SUNY Adirondack has conducted archaeology at many of these sites since 1991, and we are eager to resume our research in the summer of 2018. Instruction will be provided in archaeological field and laboratory methods, artifact identification and surveying. Lectures and readings will primarily deal with these 18th-century military sites. Enjoy a rigorous field experience that will expose you to many of the basics of field archaeology. Participants may sign up for two weeks or all six. Students can earn eight Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for each two-week non-credit course if they meet the attendance requirement.
