Archaeology Field School

May 11-31, 2014

Join us May 11-31, 2014, for Loyola’s 11th summer field school at LUREC, Loyola’s retreat and ecology campus in Woodstock, IL, about 60 miles from Chicago!

Students will receive hands-on training in archaeological field techniques, experimental methods, and archival research, taking field trips to local study sites. This year’s excavations will focus on an 1835-1860 farmstead of one of the first settlers in McHenry County.

Students will earn 3 credits through enrollment in ANTH 399: Fieldwork in Anthropology. ANTH 399 also fulfills Loyola’s Engaged Learning Requirement in the University Core Curriculum. Comfortable dorm accommodations at LUREC are also provided. Tuition and fees: $2300, room and board: $500.

No previous experience is necessary, and space is limited! Contact Dr. Dan Amick for an application soon: damick@luc.edu, 773-508-3446.
