Archaeology Field School Description
This collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh and the National Museum of Mongolia aims to increase our understanding of prehistoric settlement patterns , integration, and human-environment relationships in the northern-most region of Mongolia through archaeological investigation. Stone monuments dating to the Bronze-Age dot the hillsides where nomadic pastoralists still tend their herds and maintain much of their traditional life-ways.
