Terrestrial Field School

The Terrestrial Field School will be held May 20 - June 28, 2024 (6 weeks)

This summer’s terrestrial archaeological field schools will advance archaeological research projects on the prehistory and history of the Pensacola region. This ongoing project will explore areas of campus currently being considered for future development. We will be examining the research potential of sites we know to be in these areas, and likely finding new sites along the way.

The UWF terrestrial field school is certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists.
