Archaeology Field School Description
Students will learn archaeological field techniques by working in real field conditions, working with students and staff from the USA, the Philippines, and the Luce Asian Archaeology Program Fellows of the Department of Anthropology, University of Hawaii-Manoa. The focus of the project is twofold: to document the impact of Spanish colonization on indigenous lifeways (particularly, forced resettlement or reduccion) and early Holocene sea-level changes in the Island of Cebu. Cebu was the first seat of the Spanish colonial government in the Philippines. An archaeological survey in 2002 reports that, “Field visits were conducted to additional locales and the 17th or early 18th century visita of Punta Ysabel was found near San Remigio, Cebu. This site will provide an important comparison with the 1599 visita of Salug in Carcar.”
