Archaeology Field School

July 8 to August 16
Monday through Friday | 9am to 5pm | Rogers Island, Fort Edward

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 a great many of these sites since 1991, and we are eager to resume our research in the summer of 2019. 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.

Please note: Participants must be 18 years of age to register. Community members must register through SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education. Students can earn 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) if they meet the attendance requirement.
