Summer Archaeology Field School


The University of Lethbridge conducts a field school every summer, providing students with "hands-on" experience in archaeological excavations and material culture processing. Students from all disciplines are welcome, although ARKY 1000 is a prerequisite for earning course credit.

Through hands-on learning, you will gain experience in excavation methods and field documentation. You will also be introduced to the practical and intellectual challenges field research presents.

You will also receive laboratory analysis training and the opportunity to process and catalogue the cultural remains you find.

The broader context of the archaeological finds and the site will be explained through lectures and tours to other sites. Learn more about the opportunities at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump and Tall Dhiban via the buttons below.
