The department currently runs two summer archaeological field schools in Western Massachusetts–The UMass Fieldschool in Bioarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology and the Archaeology Field School at the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst. We also periodically offer summer ethnographic opportunities and field schools. For example, urban farming in Lisbon, Portugal in 2016 adnd 2017. These field schools teach research methods and analysis as part of ongoing research projects.
Information about 2018 Summer Field Schools Coming Soon!
