Field Schools

Students may participate in the Archaeology Field Schools or the Forensic Field School.


Archaeology Field Schools

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we will not be teaching any in person courses this summer. Unfortunately, there is no way to teach field school online so we are cancelling all of our field school courses for summer 2020. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your advisors via email. 

 

Forensic Anthropology Field School

Forensic Anthropology Field School (ANT 4990/ANG 5990, Forensic Field Recovery)

The Forensic Anthropology Field School will be held on the UWF Pensacola campus. The major goal of the 5-week field school is to train students in standard forensic methods for the discovery, documentation, and recovery of human skeletal remains. Students will learn to apply basic methods of archaeological mapping and excavation to simulated forensic scenes involving both surface-scattered and buried skeletal remains. They will also learn to distinguish human from non-human remains and gain experience with explicitly forensic procedures of evidence recovery, such as evidence documentation and collection, site security, and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment for different simulated scenarios.
