Asia - Mongolia - Northern Mongolia Archaeology Project - 2016

Deadline
2016-03-18

A small interdisciplinary, international team of Mongolian and foreign researchers will be selected to conduct archaeological research (primarily excavation, but also survey and ethnoarchaeology). No experience necessary, but interest, a good attitude and reasonable physical fitness a must! Terrain and climate are challenging, and the location is VERY remote, so general preparedness essential. No credits offered, but will work with your home institution to arrange independent study credits if necessary. Research aims: Mongolia’s mobile pastoral economy is the foundation of the national identity and primary economic strategy, a lifeway made possible with the introduction of domesticates into the area from regions to the north and west. The archaeological site of Soyo, in the Darkhad Depression of northern Mongolia, has the potential to contribute significantly to understanding questions about the archaeological history of this region. Located at the intersection of the dense forest taiga and the grass steppe-land of the basin, Soyo is uniquely positioned to facilitate interaction between hunting and herding practices. Preliminary research at the Soyo site has revealed a unique depositional history where wind-blown sand has stratified thick artifact deposits creating a one of a kind, 7,000 year continuous record of human activity. Despite being such an important part of Mongolian heritage, this site is threatened by the development of a tourist camp. It is critical that an archaeological team conduct this research at the site in the summer of 2015 as the site is actively being threatened by this development.

Central America - Honduras - Project Roatan Mesoamerican Archaeology Fieldschool - 2011

Deadline
2011-03-01

The USF Mesoamerican Archaeology Field School is a five-week summer research program that will allow students to explore the fascinating history of pirates and Puritans in the Caribbean through scientific excavation of 17th century English and Pech settlements at New Port Royal and Camp Bay Village, both located against a backdrop of beautiful tropical forests and pristine beaches on Roatán Island, Honduras. The program is designed to introduce students to the ways in which archaeology can answer questions about past lifeways and simultaneously contribute to current issues concerning cultural heritage and global tourism.

Through assisting archaeologists in the field and laboratory, participants will be trained in the methods, theories, and ethics of contemporary archaeology. Participants will learn about the cultures and colonial history of the Bay Islands, a highly contested region of the Caribbean between Spain and England during the 17th century, through seminars and field trips led by USF faculty. Students also will gain a broader perspective on the world by living and working in a Central American community.

Central America - Mexico - Ethnohistory Field Program - 2014

Deadline
2014-06-02
The purpose of this field program is to introduce students to innovative research methods in the integration of archaeology, art history, ethnohistory, and ethnography. Mexico in general and the vast state of Oaxaca in particular create an ideal research environment, where the indigenous cultures constructed monumental sites, ruled over city-states, invented complex writing systems, and crafted among the finest artistic traditions in the world, some of which are still perpetuated to this day. The clash of the Indigenous and the European worlds in the 16th century created a most unique culture, the legacy of which underlies the modern nation of Mexico. By traveling through the mountains, valleys, and coasts of Oaxaca and immersing themselves in this rich study environment, students will gain direct experience with archaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic research methods and resources. In addition, the course aims to provide insights into the practicalities of conducting academic research in Mexico, by visiting research institutes and hearing on-site lectures from local experts. A broader question to be addressed is how new modes of inquiry in archaeology can reflect on approaches more consistent with the logic inherent in the scientific method. This interactive course will explore methods that avoid one-sided dependencies, and will link the past and present through the exploration of those surviving ancient sites and living communities which are directly referenced in the ethnohistorical records. Note that this Travel Study Program does not involve active participation in an archaeological dig.

Central America - PSU Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua Archaeological Field School - 2015

Deadline
2015-05-29

Summer 2015 will mark the second year of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Field School directed by Dr. Justin Lowry (George Mason University) and Jason Paling (co-director -Plymouth State University). The goals of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Project are to explore and investigate settlements in the so-called “intermediate zone,” a diverse ecological and cultural area that stretches from the southern Maya periphery in Honduras and El Salvador to the northern edges of the Great Nicoya region. Their investigations in Nicaragua are concentrated primarily in central Nicaragua from the southwestern edge of Lake Managua to the Pacific Ocean. The intent of the project is to test the validity of models proposing an association of this area with the economic and political periphery of the southern Mesoamerican people and cultures. Archaeological investigations of a recently discovered pre–Columbian settlement in Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua will help to contribute to our understanding of the variety of cultural diversity found throughout Central America. Our long term research goal is to document household activities among sites located near and around the present day town of Chiquilistagua; a settlement located approximately six kilometers southwest of the present day capital of Managua. The town and site are located on the border between the Nicaragua Depression and the Pacific Volcanic Cordillera
