Santa Clara University Field School in Historical Archaeology

 June 21‐July 25, 2012 Santa Clara, California

The 2012 Santa Clara University summer field school in historical archaeology offers students hands‐on training in archaeological methods in the heart of Silicon Valley. Students will learn skills including site mapping, archaeological excavation, field recording, and basic laboratory procedures through an investigation into the historic cultural landscape directly north of the Santa Clara campus. Excavations will focus on areas known to have housed Native Americans who lived and worked at the Spanish colonial mission of Santa Clara de Asís. More recent deposits including those related to an early German immigrant community will likely also be encountered.


$3000 for 4 units of credit; cost includes on‐ campus housing but not food.*
